How To Avoid A Happy Life

About the book

Some people are born into bad situations, some people have bad situations thrust upon them, and some people find bad situations through their own dodgy choices, lack of information and personal idiosyncrasies. Julia’s life sits at the intersection of all three. From high school dropout on a psych ward to card-carrying lesbian on a motorbike, from enduring a controlling relationship with her ex-lover’s brother to being chased by a media scrum outside a Perth court – the life of Julia Lawrinson is stranger than fiction: a wild and marvellous tale.
