Killing time is a book full of stories of adventure, misadventure, love and loss. From the #1 bestselling author of the critically acclaimed memoirs Working Class Boy and Working Class Man. Outrageous, witty, warm and wise. Killing Time shares more than forty 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, a family feud on a remote coral atoll, and an all too- revealing appearance for a Sydney charity.
