's review

really liked it

A collection of anecdotes about sharing house in Australia. The title refers to the opening story of the narrrator finding his housemate on a bean bag "as cold as the felafel in his hand" from a heroin overdose. I laughed from cover to cover. It is uniquely Australian in its telling and humour. Having said that, I think any person would understand the experience and jocularity.
There are also blurbs from former house mates scattered throughout the book dispensing their wisdom. One of these was a female who despised zealot Smiths fans as house mates. If you know or have dated a Smiths fan, you will understand this very well.
