Description of this Book

We've all had days when if we didn't laugh, we'd cry. Whether it's a domestic drama, career cockup or just a run-of-the-mill disaster, we've all been there - no matter who we are. In this hilarious and moving collection, well-known Australians from all walks of life share their stories as a kind of mass therapy; a feel-good tonic for when the proverbial sh*t hits the fan. From Annabel Crabb's tale of Russian interference in the birth of her first child to Kate McClymont on how to manage mobsters, or Frank Moorhouse on the worst possible Valentine's Day to Emma Alberici on moving to London with three small children, these entertaining tales of woe remind us that this too shall pass.
