H.G. Nelson - Australia's foremost sports commentator, cultural critic, social observer and loud-mouthed heckler - is a legend of the tinny transistor and the small screen. But who exactly is the man behind the mike? Where did he come from? Why is he here? In this astonishing memoir, H.G. takes us back to his Barossa childhood to show us how a very different Australia shaped the boy who was to become the man who was to become the legend. As an apprentice jockey riding nags saved from the abattoir, as an aspiring footballer for the Penrice Quolls and Moculta Parrots, as a contender in the famous Barossa Stuhl - one of the world's greatest whistling competitions - H.G. takes the lot off and reveals his formative years in full, unflinching detail. Less fortunate than A.B. Facey, with fewer winners than Bart and more eating than Elizabeth Gilbert, H.G's My Life in Shorts is destined to become a classic of the I-grew-up-in-the-Barossa-Valley-and-now-I'­m-famous genre.
