Roy Boy is the compelling story of Christopher Bennett who was born and raised in the working-class suburb of Fitzroy in the 1950s and 1960s. In those days it was considered a slum area and the close-knit community had more than its fair share of ratbags, drunks and crooks. A cheeky and boisterous kid of migrant parents, Chris roamed the streets and nearby haunts for fun and adventure and found much more than he bargained for – including trouble with authorities and exile from his home and family.
“I haven’t read a book in years but read yours in four days. I could smell the smells and felt the feelings I had back in time’.
