Maddening, Self-indulgent Crap: Words by Peter Goers

Author(s): Peter Goers


South Australian broadcaster, columnist, theatre guru and
critic Peter Goers has been known and loved for his
sardonic wit and laconic flair for decades. This collection –
which borrows its title from a review Goers once gave a
Fringe show in the 80s, and now happily turns on himself –
gathers the best of his Fringe shows, columns (‘the very few
I’ve taken a little pride in’), and a modicum of memoir.
This deliciously witty book features cameos from a who’s
who of the theatre and entertainment worlds, including
anecdotes about Glenn Gould and Ethel Merman,
friendships with Barry Humphries, Anne ‘Willsy’ Wills and
Max Harris, close encounters with Angela Lansbury and Adriana Xenides, and fleeting moments with Tennesse Williams
and Bette Davis.
