Strawberry Hills Forever
In 2007, a collection of my stories was published in book form by Local Consumption Publications, accompanied by illustrations by Keg de Souza. It featured some stories from my zines, most notably two complete issues of Laughter and the Sound of Teacups, the zine I wrote every 23rd of the month from 1997 – 2002. It also featured new stories, including a treatise about Sydney op shops, described in one review as “Berry visiting endless op-shops”, and stories about favourite Sydney locations such as the Camperdown Velodrome (now O’Dea Reserve).
There are still a few copies available for purchase here.
The book was launched at the Camperdown Bowling Club with a cake in the shape of a typewriter, a huge pass the parcel and a portrait of the Queen looking on.
