About Johnny T. Noctor

I'm a boxer, author, poet and film maker, oh and a hobo. As I travel around with my swag, I film my life and the beautiful scenery of Australia. Although I'm decrepit, I can run all the way to the top of Mt Wellington, the magnificent mountain that looms over Hobart in Tasmania. That pinnacle is mine and the mountain is my Higher Power. I'm also an older sober member of AA.


Review by: Vikki m on May 15, 2014 :
Well Johnny T Noctor - what a story. Even though I am not a Boxing Fan and didn't understand some of the boxing terminology, I found this book to be funny, exciting, sad, witty, frustrating and I certainly look forward to the follow up chronicles of the Hobo.

This story has certainly been written with passion and grabs the reader from the start. It was short and sweet and I read it all in one session as I was eager to learn the outcome.

Writing a book from the Alcoholic's perspective especially one with brain damage definately gives one a different viewpoint. The language in places is somewhat strong, although is fitting within the story of the writers frustrations.

Will definately purchase the follow up.
