Publisher Description

A book about life that discusses liquor and lovemaking as much as it does the point of it all.

Judith Lucy has looked everywhere for happiness. Growing up a Catholic, she thought about becoming a nun, and later threw herself into work, finding a partner and getting off her face. Somehow, none of that worked.

So lately, she's been asking herself the big questions. Why are we here? Is there a God? What happens when we die? And why can't she tell you which of her friends has herpes, but not what they believe in?

In her first volume of memoir, the bestselling The Lucy Family Alphabet, Judith tried to work out her parents. In Drink, Smoke, Pass Out, she tries to find out if there's more to life than wanting to suck tequila out of Ryan Gosling's navel. With disarming frankness and classic dry wit, she reviews the major paths of her life and, alarmingly, finds herself on a journey.

'A well written, poignant, moving and naturally humorous story of one forty-something's attempt to get her life together.' Australian Bookseller + Publisher

'An often hilarious, at times disarming account of her ongoing search for spiritual awakening.' Madison

'Can she write? Heck, yeah . . . At least one laugh per page - that's about 245 laughs' Herald Sun

Not quite as funny as her last book, but thought provoking and entertaining.

Fantastic read, plenty of laugh out loud moments balanced with very real, very authentic anecdotes. You're just so Jude, Jude. Adore this book, the tv series, and your stand up.

Drink Smoke Pass Out

Thoroughly enjoyed Judith's latest. I had an instant connection to many of the thoughts and like-like experiences in the book and could totally relate on many levels with lots of snort laughs and regularly cacking myself. Sat nam.....
