I Nicked Brezhnev’s Brick
Paperback | English
From Russia’s Red Square to the red heart of Australia, I Nicked Brezhnev’s Brick – Confessions of a Kiwi Backpacker is the tale of a young New Zealander’s ‘Coming of age’, in the Cold War dominated world that existed in the early 1970s. The rite of passage of many Kiwis is to do the ‘Big OE’, experiencing first-hand what lies beyond the shores of our little antipodean isles. Rob Shannon, as one of the baby boomer generation, who was fortunate because he had no war to fight, just a world to conquer.
