Everything Harder Than Everyone Else
Port Melb Bowls Club at 130 Spring St W, Port Melbourne
Please note: This event has changed dates.
Join us for the launch of Jenny Valentish’s Everything Harder than Everyone Else: Why Some of Us Push Our Bodies to Extremes.
In her latest book, Valentish meets porn stars, bare-knuckle boxers, performance artists and BDSM lifers, revealing what their endeavours in endurance can teach us about the human condition.
Jenny will be joined by Australian wrestling legend KrackerJak who has faced everyone from former WWE Superstars to feared indie legends since starting out in 1999, and takes ill-advised sojourns into deathmatch wrestling, wielding wild home-cobbled weapons and being struck by more of the same.
The Q&A is led by Scarlett Harris, an Australian culture critic, with a focus on professional wrestling and television. Her book A Diva Was a Female Version of a Wrestler is out now.
This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
