Living off the Smell of an Oily Rag has been an outstanding success since it was first published in 1991. It's been reprinted seven times and has been published in serial form by some thirty publications throughout New Zealand. Presented in a down-to-earth and humorous style, the Newmans show that living off the smell of an oily rag is not about hardship or deprivation - it's about fun and creativity, and making the most of the abundance we have around us.
