Fred Pawle has spent three years researching and interviewing dozens of Leak’s friends and colleagues to create this intimate and honest biography.

Now, for the first time, here is the whole beautiful but occasionally troubled story behind an extraordinarily gifted Australian artist, cartoonist, writer and raconteur.

“Bill was a fearless satirist, a brilliant artist and an independent thinker. As an editor, a morning conversation with him about that day’s cartoon was the absolute highlight of my day.”

– Michelle Gunn, editor, The Australian and The Weekend Australian
