How to Avoid a Happy Life

Julia Lawrinson

From domestic dysfunction to extraordinary bad luck, Julia Lawrinson reflects on her intriguing and eventful life with disarming honesty and wit.

Some people are born into bad situations, some people have bad situations thrust upon them, and some people find bad situations through their 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 beloved children's author Julia Lawrinson is stranger than fiction - and she draws on all her power as a storyteller to turn a life of intense headlines into a wild, marvellous tale.
