One man's search for meaning in a tabloid world

There's no place quite like page 11 of Tuesday's Bendigo Advertiser.That's where columnist and people's poet John Holton shares his backyard wisdom on many of life's unsung moments ...from life-altering experiences in the fruit and veg section of the local supermarket, to pondering the universe over tea and cake; he seeks out the quirky and the profound amid the everyday.

Between Here and Home is a special collection of those columns, spanning three years, more than 100 Tuesdays, and one new hip along the way. Step into John's world and be humbled by one of central Victoria's favourite storytellers.

John Holton's words are bright, shining things
that illuminate the ordinary, elevate the lowly
and disperse the darkness. He takes us with him
on his search for meaning and in doing so makes
us his confidantes and friends.
