At last, 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 what her close friends believe in, but she can tell you which ones have herpes? No-one could have been more surprised than Judith when she started to find solace and meaning in yoga and meditation, and a newfound appreciation for what others get from their religion.

In her first volume of memoir, the bestselling The Lucy Family Alphabet, Judith dealt with 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.

About the Author

Judith Lucy is a local funny lady who has whored herself out to any medium that would have her, including radio (the less said about that the better) and film (most recently she was the racist in The Sapphires). She is probably best known as a stand-up comedian who has hauled her sorry arse around the country, and occasionally overseas, with ten one-woman shows. She wrote The Lucy Family Alphabet, in which she squeezed the last bit of humour out of her dead parents for cash. Most recently, she made the television series Judith Lucy's Spiritual Journey for the ABC, because she really wanted a free trip to India and the opportunity to dress up as a Viking (you'll have to watch the show).

          A little raw and confronting in parts, I think I would prefer to laugh at Judith rather than cry with her. Some parts had me laughing out loud.

                I laughed at this, but it worried me. The woman has some problems but encouraging to read she's sorting them out. And encouraging to all of us with our own problems that we may one day be model citizens.
