And You May Find Yourself

by Paul Dalgarno

And You May Find Yourself is the hilarious and harrowing account of a Scottish émigré in Melbourne, in search of a job so that his young family can live, and desperately at odds with his new found role as father and bread-winner. Living in his in-laws’ lounge room with mounting disgust growing between him and his wife and a tenuous hold on an emotional connection with his two children, Paul’s life is cramped, poor, and seemingly adrift from the future he thought he would have for himself. A brave, enthralling memoir loaded with pathos that will leave you pondering on your own life journey long after you’ve turned the final page.

“Honest, raw, hilarious and melancholic. Impeccable writing. Compelling storytelling.”
-Catherine Deveny

“A brave, enthralling, emotionally charged memoir, told with such arresting candour that I continued to be influenced by its mood whenever I managed to put the book down, and felt the influence of its message long after I’d turned the final page.”
-Clint Greagan (Reservoir Dad)

“Honest, entirely original, and often hilarious – one man’s coming to terms with his new country, and himself.”
-Gay Alcorn (editor, Guardian Australia)
