In William s first book A Man's Got to Have a Hobby he wrote about family life in the 1960s with humour, affection and honesty. Worse Things Happen at Sea does the same for family life in 2000s; written by William and Sarah in a way that many Australians can relate to and enjoy.

This book celebrates the wonderful, messy, haphazard things in life - bringing home babies from hospital, being a friend, a parent, son or daughter, and dog obedience classes. It's about living for twenty years in the family home, raising children there, chasing angry rabbits around the backyard, renovations that never end. It is also about understanding that sometimes you have to say goodbye; that is part of life too.

MEDIA REVIEWS

In this quiet, gentle book, actor and writer William McInnes joins his wife, filmmaker Sarah Watt, to describe the unexceptional fabric of their suburban lives. The effect is remarkable. But even in the most ordinary of lives there are heartbreaking events that McInnes and Watt deal with in a way in which sensitivity is never overwhelmed by drama... This is more than a book about ordinariness. It is a subtle celebration of the simple, transcendental joys of love and family, set against the recurrence of Watt's cancer which, as she wrote, moved into her bones and the challenge of dealing with the stark reality that it was terminal. - The Sydney Morning Herald If you could use some inspiration to seize the day, this lovely book could be for you. - The Canberra Times What a beautiful and tactile book to have and to hold, to read through, to skip through, to enjoy the beauty of filmmaker Sarah Watt's photography and the excellence of the entire publication. It is a privilege to be a part of actor William McInnes and Watt's domain, sharing the laughter, sadness and simple pleasures and humility of their lives. - Ballarat Courier
