A live recording of author and poet Michael Thwaites reading from his original poetry with musical selections by his daughter, international concert pianist Penelope Thwaites.

The poems recall episodes from his extraordinarily varied life, including service in the Royal Navy during World War 2, and tender and amusing observations of his life and times.

Performed at the Australian National University on Sunday 28 May 1995. This recording © Artsound FM 2013, used with permission.
