Before Rupert Murdoch married Jerry Hall and Tony Abbott was Prime Minister of Australia, enterprising shoe salesman Bert Smith got an offer he couldn't refuse--to live the high life in Melbourne's premier suburb--Toorak
There was a catch, however...
He had to tell everyone within cooee that he was a prince--a Toorak prince
And that's when all the fun began for Bert
Writing from her experience growing up in Toorak, Rosemary Macindoe blends a m lange of humour, satire and with a dash of poignancy in "The Toorak Jackpot". This modern fable, inspired by Dickens' "Great Expectations" explores what it means to be truly wealthy.
