Greg Fleet Ö 3 review

Over the world On the low road a yearning for true love mutates in the maelstrom of addiction and leads to an extraordinary downward spiral featuring faked and near deaths sharing houses and needles a six month romance with ice rock bottom and just maybe redemptionGreg Fleet weaves the most mesmeric of memoirs Part sweet poison part guilty pleasure from first gentle kiss to hate fuelled wrecking ball These things happe. I kind of remember Greg Fleet from his days as a regular on Full Frontal and some of his stand up and I was uite surprised when I saw a recording of his show 13 Years in a Long Sleeved Shirt when he seemed to be very candid about his seemingly then past hard drug habitI wasn t really sure about reading his memoir I wanted to know what had finally got him the help he needed and I felt reading it from a comedian s perspective it would be easier reading than some memoirs about this topic although what made me want to chase it up was the Chat 10 Looks 3 Leigh Sales and Annabel Crabb podcasts where they told the story of his fatherI m glad I read this it helped me to better understand the processes of drug add

These Things Happen

E's had a drug habit that has delivered him comedy and tragedy in eual partsThese Things Happen is Fleet's hilarious heartbreaking account of the life or death battle for his soul On the high road a genius wit and prodigious work ethic takes him from NIDA and Neighbours to Shakespeare with the MTC and writing and performing award winning theatre around the country and on to acclaim and adoration on stand up stages all. I liked this mainly because I like Greg Fleet after seeing him do a stand up routine on TV years ago The routine was very funny but poignant as well The book which is mainly about his heroin addiction and his efforts to put that addiction behind him is not so funny Rather it is uite gruelling and has a slight confessional tone That said there are some funny stories and I bet I m not the only one who is now walking around singing pushed off pushed off or stabbed off to the I dream of Jeanie theme tune

    This is a great read I'd say 'addictive' but I might seem like kind of a prickIt was hilarious and heartfelt I read it on a plane next to my boss and their were moments I had to stop because shedding a tear would have been looked down on I'm a sucker for stuff about kids though While I was able to not cry the stranger on the other side of me thought I was mental when I did a literal spit take laughing There were a few
