Very exciting to be in this story “The Great Bookie Robbery” although playing a minor role in the last chapter. We have never been in Australien before – so in the story, Maria and I walk into a bookshop and being offered coffee and talk with the owner.
This is a bit more detailed account of my meeting with Henry and Maria.
I wrote this final chapter some years after the event of the Great Bookie Robbery Catastrophe, but at least it brings things to a close and with any luck I can get on with my life.
When I was discharged from the Army I wasn’t in the greatest condition emotionally. I went to live with my parents in the Dandenong Ranges and to keep myself occupied I opened a small bookshop and tried to forget the whole affair.
It was a nice little shop although I didn’t sell many books. I spent most of my time making coffee for anyone who dropped in. This wasn’t a sales gimmick – I just liked an excuse to sit and talk with anyone who would sit and talk back to me.
But one day the whole thing changed.
