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 awkwardly loud laughs At its very best you can hear Fleet s voice through the prose Even when he is talking about his lows with often awkward candour he still manages to come off as likeable and hilarious The honesty is key to this book While I couldn t be certain I d be surprised if there was anything he held back By putting his highs and lows down he creates a real connection with the reader You don t have to be a comedy aficionado to enjoy this book very little of it will be lost on you Beyond the crazy life stories Fleet goes into his creative process with a particularly excellent anecdote that I won t spoil here It s the story of a comedian an actor a writer a heroin addict a father a son and a friend Someone who has done things they wished they hadn t and someone who has managed to create some great artHighly recommend

These Things Happen Free read ï 2 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 addiction recovery and re addiction and brought me some empathy to people I know who have found themselves in a similar situation while reaffirming why distancing myself was the best protection at times However from a writing perspective I do wish he d maybe written it with someone perhaps some intervening chapters from his ex partner because sometimes with comedian memoirs I ve read they are better suited to writing stand up material than longer form writing which sometimes came across in Fleet s writing however its brutal honesty made it compelling At times he had chapters I felt were filler not really adding to the story but were just side jokes such as why Paul Kelly s recipe for gravy doesn t work and what it s like trying to write a book chapter stoned The reader was constantly reminded how annoying and hard it was for Fleet to sit down and deliver the book to a deadline which sometimes made me feel like I was imposing on someone who didn t really want to talk to me right now As it was I read this in bits because sometimes I just didn t have the energy to accommodate some parts especially when it was about how ridiculously easy it was for him to coast through the entertainment industry which not only funded but encouraged his addiction Naturally I felt frustrated by the circular narrative which was about his own life journey seeming to go in ever decreasing self sabotaging circles than the actual pacing of the memoir but I felt I was reading the narrative of someone who does have gratitude and self awareness but without a lot of the wishy washy Namaste man bun stuff that is hard to read with a straight face
