No idea who either of them are...I might live under a rock though if they are Aussie"celebs".

I think this will go down in history as a thread that bombed.Should we know these people? You might have to educate us.

Nobody knows a former Australian of the year?

This is the book forum, right? They are also both well-known Australian authors.

It's Tim Flannery, not Flannigan. They are both authors.

When I realised you meant Flannary not flanagan, it made a lot more sense.

Oh ok, Tim Flannery. I still don't know how opposites attract, though? An ex-sex worker and an environmentalist, not really "opposites", as such, to me.. Am I missing something?

Haha sorry I got Richard Flanagan and Tim F mixed up.

Just a bit weird, maybe only for a nerd like me. I have read both their books, Holden is a bit of a light read, ex-addict, prostitute, self-obsessed, Flannery is a brilliant scientist, historian etc
