Green charts the friendship of unlikely duo Phil Harris and Frank Green from their early med school days in 1981 to the present day, incorporating all the short stories and the novel World of Chickens.

From the disgraceful Creme de Menthe incident in their early med school days in 1981, to their time as Brisbane's maestros of fried chicken, all the way to a disastrous attempt at the 2012 New York marathon, Phil Harris and Frank Green have been an unlikely but enduring duo.

For the first time, Green puts all the short stories together with the novel World of Chickens, plus a brand new piece to bring this uneasy friendship all the way to the present.
