Remember Crackernight? Sydney Author Justin Sheedy sure does and has captured the era of this magical & much-missed fireworks festival in his childhood portrait of 1970s Australia, Goodbye Crackernight. Sheedy has recently been receiving major media attention re this, his first of four warmly-received books, and will be signing copies of the new edition of Goodbye Crackernight at Dymocks Sydney on Saturday 27 June. To view the recent Seven News SydneyFLASHBACK” segment featuring Sheedy and his book, click the below pic for the video (Facebook version).

To listen to Sheedy’s recent Radio 2UE interview publicising his Dymocks book-signing event, click the following…

2UE Mick JeffreysCRACKERNIGHT! One night a year, the infinite normality of the suburbs is shot with utter magic. Goodbye Crackernight is a story of fireworks, of fun that cost nothing, of second-hand bikes, UFO-crowded skies, streakers, lime green Valiants, half-sucked Sunny Boys and electric pink hotpants. It is a story of growing up and innocence left behind. It is the tale of an era, of far simpler times, of an annual neighbourhood festival and an Australia now long gone.
