9780006551300: The Tasmanian Babes Fiasco

In the sequel to He Died With A Felafel In His Hand, John Birmingham guides us through a rip-roaring tale of house-sharing hell.

When John Birmingham and his flatmates took in the new guy they had their doubts. The Celine Dion albums, the hordes of fluffy stuffed animals and the plastic-covered floral-pattern love seat should have set their threat detectors singing. Within days their house had become a swirling maelstrom of junkies, stolen goods and hired goons, Tasmanian Babes and Karate Dykes. And then the new guy did a runner – taking their money and possessions with him.

Now the flatmates have just one week to sober up, find two thousand dollars and catch the runaway before the government, the cops, crims and their landlord tear their house down and jump on their bones.

‘If The Young Ones is one of your favourite TV shows… Birmingham’s sequel to He Died With A Felafel In His Hand is what you’ve been waiting for’

From the Back Cover:

SEQUEL TO ' HE DIED WITH A FELAFEL IN HIS HAND '

When JB and his flatmates took in the new guy they had their doubts. The Celine Dion albums, the hordes of fluffy stuffed animals and the plastic-covered floral-patterned love seat should have set the alarm bells ringing. But nobody was paying attention. Within days their house had become a swirling maelstrom of heavy metal junkies, stolen goods, evil yuppies, karate dykes and Tasmanian Babes.

Now the flatmates have one week to sober up, find two thousand dollars and catch the runaway new guy before the government, the cops, the crims, their landlords and some very angry lesbians tear their house down.

Praise for 'He died with a felafel in his hand'.

“ a very entertaining freak show…deserves to be a hit”
NICHOLAS LEZARD’S ‘pick of the week’, ' The Guardian '.

“This year’s funniest book…You’ll read it with horrified amusement and, if you’ve ever shared a flat, the occasional wince of recognition.”
TERRY PRATCHET
