THE CHRON­I­CLES OF PAT­TER BY PETER HARD­WICK

Style Magazine - - Entertainment - BY JES­SICA KRAMER

For 12 years now, The Chron­i­cle news­pa­per has in­cluded the weekly ‘Peter Pat­ter’ col­umn to the de­light of read­ers.

Al­most 600 col­umns later, and a book gather­ing some of the best Pat­ters has hit the mar­ket.

This vol­ume is great for a laugh, whether it be at the writer’s out­ra­geous life ex­pe­ri­ences, or his hu­mourous look at cur­rent af­fairs and news.

For easy read­ing, the book is di­vided into sec­tions — travel, pop cul­ture, cur­rent af­fairs, Pat­ter pains, baby Pete, drink­ing Pete and mishaps, Pete’s court re­ports, Car­ni­val of Flow­ers and events, Mil­lie for Min­istry, farts and other crass sto­ries, and fu­ture Pete — so you can read cover-to-cover or pick- and-choose what topic you feel like read­ing.

It’s the ideal cof­fee-ta­ble book, or one to keep on your shelf for those times you need a light-hearted pick-me-up.

The Chron­i­cles of Pat­ter by Peter Hard­wick is pub­lished by News Re­gional Me­dia and is avail­able from The Chron­i­cle of­fice; RRP $9.95.
