Goon Profile – Steve Bruce

Steve Bruce

Williamstown Vic

Who are you:
An older dude with modern thoughts, who can be found blowing harp, skiing, writing or reading (not necessarily in that order).

How long have you been with TGBC:
My first meeting was To Kill a Mockingbird at Footscray Chapter.

What’s your favourite TGBC book?
This is a hard question as 'Blood Meridian' is way up the top of the list, wrestling with 'Home' and 'The Eye of the Sheep'. 'Ham On Rye' has 'Trout Fishing in America' in a full nelson and 'Good Omens' and 'Hitchikers Guide' are taunting 'The Old Man and the Sea'.

Why are you a member of TGBC:
I love the honesty. The interaction between men of differing ages and various walks of life. The opportunity to read books, that have in the past, been outside the scope of what I would normally read. I like being accountable for my take on a story and then to learn from what other guy's perceptions are of the same work.

What book have we not read yet that you’d like to do at TGBC:
Cormac McCarthy's 'Suttree' and Murakami's 'Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki'.
