Lounge Lizard - The Virgin of Rooty Hill - Thursday 16th November

The Virgin of Rooty Hill & Other Stories of the Smoking Room

To be launched by John Bryson Q.C.
The Virgin of Rooty Hill is a book of amusing stories from inside Clubland and the inner circles of newspaper publishing. The book reveals the drama of Kerry Packer’s Irish Linen Sheets, delves into the Mystery of the Club Trousers, tells about Luciano Pavorotti’s encounter with a virgin from Rooty Hill, and relates other in-club stories.

But who is the Lounge Lizard? And who “The Courtier”? The Lounge Lizard is a former investigative journalist based in Sydney and London, while “The Courtier” is a well-known Australian artist.

It is not through modesty that the author and illustrator are hiding behind by their chosen pseudonyms. Both are Members of an exclusive Sydney Club that has traditionally preferred to stay out of the limelight. As loyal members of their club, they have decided to adhere to that tradition.


Date and time: Thursday 16th November, 6pm for 6.30pm
