    After a childhood marked by alcoholism, violence and abuse and after being sent to Pentridge for buggery when he was 17, Noel Tovey escaped Australia to live a rags-to-riches story in which be became a dancer, actor, singer, choreographer and director in England and America, working alongside some of the great film and theatre artists of his day. In Little Black Bastard Noel recalls his return to Australia and his reconciliation with the country that had never managed to provide him with a home. His experiences make up one of Australia’s most remarkable stories.
