Worse Things Happen at Sea by Australian actor William McInnes and his wife, filmmaker and animator Sarah Watts, is a wonderful celebration of Australian life, families, relationships, parenting, renovating and much more.
the simplicity yet messiness of everyday life is a pure joy to read. Worse
Things Happen at Sea is about
two famous Australians in the television, film and writing industry; two very
ordinary people who live through the day-to-day stuff we all do: raising
children, renovating homes, coping with the illness of love ones, making
mistakes, fixing things and not being able to fix things. The fact that Sarah
Watt died after a battle with cancer last November left me devastated that I
didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t know her
personally, but for a short time she let me into her life through this
wonderful memoir and her touching photographs. She introduced me to her
children and welcomed me into her home.
The writing of the chapters is shared between the couple and each is a
lesson in living for the moment; not for tomorrow.
