The Summertime of Our Dreams is an unforgettable celebration of life, a hymn to country, and a meditation on mortality, friendship and the memory and dreams of youth.

Susan Johnson is in-conversation with Michael Pascoe discussing his memoir The Summertime of Our Dreams.

A category buster, it is memoir, but not biography; an engrossing, moving read, but also woven in layers of metaphor for our times, posing questions of our achievements and future for those who seek them.

Eloquent, profound – and sometimes funny, as mates can be with one another – Summertime tackles the frailty and hilarity of aging and the reality of our mortality in “the summing up years”.

There is love and loss to be embraced, heritage to be acknowledged and legacy challenged. A book as wide as the land, as targeted as a father’s love for his child.
