On 19 March, 1932, after nine years of planning and building, more than a million Australians crossed the newly opened Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest arch bridge in the world. This revised edition of Peter Spearitt's biography of the Bridge celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in March 2012. It tells the extraordinary story of the Bridge's design and construction, the drama of its official opening, and the way it has taken a central place in Sydney's celebrations and become a much-loved symbol of the city. The Bridge has inspired great art and drawn visitors from all over the world to marvel and climb it, yet is still so familiar that Sydneysiders refer to it endearingly as the coathanger. The Sydney Harbour Bridge celebrates not only a magnificent structure, but the people who use it.
Australia has evolved from a nation of tea drinkers into one of passionate, true-to-Italian-immigrant espresso consumers.
There are moments in life in which logic doesn't seem to match any possible expectation and what happens can be seen both as normal as well as surreal, and yet, out of an abnormal reality, we think about something that can't be possibly accepted because, if true, spreads mass panic and, if not, leads us to ridicule. 25 of January 2013 was the day the mysterious reflected in me, showing a man that could have been myself in another time period but was not, or was he? If logic is made out of the reality we usually feel, then that's when our reality changes to guide us into a new paradigm of observations. As I sit and observe the French girl, a few tables apart from me, writing compulsively in her napkin, I know that it's not as much important understanding why she didn't even look at my face as to why is she writing in a napkin. But truly intriguing is the conversation that follows between two men, which even though alive are believed to be dead to the whole world and seen as unreal to the ones that know them. One of them is me and the other I have no idea of who can he be, and that's why this book can only be described as fiction, even though sharing information about a very realistic and probabilistic future for mankind, a future we should all be aware of.
