Mike O’Connor began his career in metropolitan daily newspapers as a nineteen year old cadet amidst the clatter of typewriters, shouts of ‘Copy!’ and the ever present smell of molten metal from typesetting machines. Along the way he became a columnist and has written about politics, travel, food, motoring, life at large and worked as a foreign correspondent in Los Angeles, covering the Hollywood entertainment scene for News Limited’s Australian newspapers. He continues to write about travel and cars as well as offering a view on life through his widely read 'Back Chat' column in The Courier Mail QWeekend Saturday magazine. Life on a column is a collection of these 'Back Chat' articles, a wry, amusing and sometimes poignant record of the disaster prone existence that has been his life.
