Review: Time of My Life by Myf Warhurst
There is no doubt in my mind that Myf Warhurst truly loves music. I love her argument that you should be allowed to like what music you like without caring what anyone else thinks--one that more people should take into consideration. And although this memoir is linked to music at every turn, some of the best moments come when she is describing her childhood in rural Victoria, of having a family dog that would roam the town, of the family holiday home that was constructed from a decommissioned tram (how awesome would that be,) and a trip to Adelaide to go to her first ever concert. I also enjoyed her insights into working at Triple J (which is where I first encountered her as a listener, tuning in to the Net 50, something that seems like such an outdated concept now but felt so cutting edge at the time,) though I bristled just a bit at some of her later experiences, such as attending the Logies and the criticism that was levelled at her outfit. Still, the whole thing remains upbeat and entertaining and was a lot of fun to read.
Time of My Life is a fun glimpse into the life of someone who has led a varied and interesting media career.
