John Birmingham has lived with eighty-nine people and kept notes on all of them. This is their story.

'A rat died in the living room at King Street and we didn't know. There was at least six inches of compacted rubbish between our feet and the floor. Old Ratty must have crawled in there and died of pleasure. A visitor uncovered him while groping about for a beer!'

This best-seller led to a successful stage play and major motion picture, starring Noah Taylor and Sophie Lee. It has been published in Britain and Italy.

The sequel to this book is called The Tasmanian Babes Fiasco.

'One of the funniest books ever.' Loaded.

At last! The bestseller book has now become a cult movie: He Died with a Felafel in his Hand the motion picture will be in cinemas near you in August 2001 (unless you're not Australian, in which case you'd better emigrate here quickly).
