Stories of adventure, misadventure, love and loss from the #1 bestselling author of the critically acclaimed memoirs Working Class Boy and Working Class Man.

For a musician, killing time is an occupational hazard – hours and years slip by as you drive between towns, queue at airports, wait around at soundchecks and rest between tours. There’s a lot of time to kill. My first two books sought to unpack a troubled childhood and make sense of my crazy rock ’n’ roll life. The stories in this collection are about what happened in between – in the downtime before gigs or during recording sessions, while travelling in remote places, hanging out with other musicians, or just quietly going about day-to-day life. Little things that took place along the way, on the long road home. Tales of adventure, misadventure, love and loss – this collection of non-fiction short stories from the Australian rock legend turned writer is vintage Jimmy. Outrageous, witty, warm and wise, Killing Time shares more than 40 yarns reflecting an epic life – from an encounter with a soul legend in Memphis, a night in a haunted studio in upstate New York and a doomed haircut in Thailand, to a madcap misunderstanding in a Japanese ski resort and an all-too-revealing appearance for a Sydney charity.

'A stunning piece of work – relentless, earnest, shockingly vivid.'
The Australian

'A powerful, deeply emotional and transformative production.'
The Daily Telegraph

'Rare is the man who has lived this hard, this fast and this dangerously – only to survive and chronicle it all so superbly.'
Lisa Wilkinson, author of It Wasn't Meant to Be Like
