Product Description
 
Welcome to Sydney, the 'Emerald City',
With the world's nicest harbour - it's really quite pretty.
The surface is gorgeous but give it a scratch,
And you'll see how the upsides all come with a catch . . .

For children, Sydney is a wondrous place of jacaranda trees, chugging harbour ferries and singing ice cream trucks. For the rest of us, Sydney is a cess pit of red-faced road rage, late-running trains and overpriced bloody everything.

In this hilarious homage to the kids' classic Alphabetical Sydney, local creatives Paul Chappell and Josh Whiteman take an adults-only, A-Z tour of one of Australia's most iconic cities to reveal the truth its residents all recognise- while it looks lovely, it's f*cking impossible to live in.

To anyone who's ever had a good moan about the lockout laws, parking wardens or just the whole of the Eastern suburbs (but knows deep in their cynical heart that Sydney still beats Melbourne hands down)- this book is for you.Welcome to Sydney, the 'Emerald City',
