My Dad Wrote a Porno Live

Time Out (Sydney) - - Things To Do - Re­becca Russo

WHAT WOULD YOU do if you found out your dad wrote a porno­graphic novel? Would you ig­nore its very ex­is­tence? Would you bring it up with him? Or would you, say, cre­ate a pod­cast with two of your friends and read out chap­ters to the wider world? Let’s just say, Jamie Mor­ton made the right de­ci­sion. The
