In Confessions of an Australian Assimilator, author, Barnaby Growling, arrives in Australia on the 22nd of March 2021. He settles when he arrives in Rockhampton in September 2021. It is now January 2022, and his heart has yet to flutter. He is living a bit of an Australian stereotype. Those who know him best have said that if anyone deserves to be here, he does. But even if he chooses to accept the premise that he had a special capacity to run harder and faster than anybody else, in the relay race that brought him to the lucky country, he knows it would have meant nothing if all the people who assisted him hadn't put a baton in his hand to cross the finish line with. You can't win without that.

Barnaby Growling can only be described as an unorthodox triple threat: Poet, Audiologist and Author in that order. At the tender age of eleven, he was selected by the UK Young Writers initiative for publication in the poetry anthology Hidden Treasures Bristol: Volume 1. Eventually, expanding into prose, Barnaby proved quite the unlikeable show-off; by winning both the Jos Millar Prize from the British Society of Audiology, and the D W Robinson Prize from the Institute of Acoustics in successive years. He now resides in Queensland Australia, where nobody knows nor cares about any of this, and quite right too!
