Summary
THEY'RE A WEIRD MOB is about Sydney, Australia in 1965, a sprawling, growing city of three million people. And what people! Easy going, down-to-earth and hilariously funny. In truth, a very weird mob. Into the city and fresh off the boat comes innocent, Italian immigrant Nino Culotta who soon finds his promised sportwriter's job has vanished along with his bankrupt cousin and sponsor. A job as a builder's labourer comes his way and Nino quickly gets an education in how to be a fair dinkum Aussie, one of the "weird mob" with their outlandish language and strange ways
