Summary
In William's first book "A man's got to have a hobby" he wrote about family life in the 1960s with humour, affection and honesty. "Worse things happen at sea" does the same for family life in 2000s; written by William and Sarah in a way that many Australians can relate to and enjoy.This book celebrates the wonderful, messy, haphazard things in life -- bringing home babies from hospital, being a friend, a parent, son or daughter, and dog obedience classes. It's about living for twenty years in the family home, raising children there, chasing angry rabbits around the backyard, renovations that never end. It is also about understanding that sometimes you have to say goodbye; that is part of life too
