What happens when a young man adopts the practices of a counterculture, without any of its ethics? Liam Pieper was raised by his bohemian parents to believe in freedom and creativity, and that there's thing wrong with smoking a little marijuana to make life easier. Nothing if t precocious, he used these lessons to develop a fledgling drug habit and a thriving business selling pot from the back of his pushbike. Liam's adventures as a teen entrepreneur taught him many valuable skills, like how best to enrage a deranged jujitsu master, and how to negotiate pocket money with his parents based on how much he was charging them for an ounce. But from these highs (chemical and otherwise), Liam's life began to spiral down to some striking lows. After a family tragedy and then his arrest on several counts of possession and trafficking, Liam had to pause and ask himself: How the hell did I get here? This is the story of how he got there - from muddled flower child to petty criminal to amoral coke monster - and of how he finally found some kind of way out. Hilarious, compelling and sometimes heartbreaking, The Feel-Good Hit of the Year is a memoir about family, drugs and learning how to live with yourself, from a sharp and original new Australian voice.
