Joel Magarey book launch
Readings Carlton — 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053
Michael McGirr (Things You Get For Free, Bypass and The Lost Art of Sleep) will launch Exposure: A Journey, Joel Magarey’s funny and poignant memoir of adventure and love with a sharp psychological edge.
Joel, a young journalist haunted by both inflated dreams and obsessive-compulsive disorder, abandons his career and girlfriend of seven years for a long-imagined global odyssey - and unimagined perils. Travel tale, love story and quixotic tragicomedy, Exposure is about wanting too much, choosing too little and how a person can spend three weeks solid in Los Angeles searching for the perfect sleeping bag.
Veteran Lonely Planet author George Dunford will MC. 6.00pm for a 6.30 start
