The Bedroom Philosopher Diaries
A collection of hilarious and melancholic reports from Justin Heazlewood, aka The Bedroom Philosopher, and his wealth of experience as a touring Folkstar. Read about his epic battles with drunk punters, scatty rockstars, aloof groupies and, mostly, himself. These tell-all tales allow exclusive access to the depths of the performer psyche –Boho Stripped Bare.
Each entry grooves with The Bedroom Philosopher’s
trademark wordplay, Gen-Y commentary and commitment to emotional honesty. Under the glare of the stage lights he explores the ungainly labyrinth of his alter-ego and the puzzling mechanics of the Australian entertainment scene.
Praise for The Bedroom Philosopher Diaries
‘This is what all the great rock-and-roll touring books
would have been like, if the people who wrote them had
been honest to the point of embarrassment.’ Neil Gaiman
‘With pigeon-toed humour and bruising honesty, this is a tour diary filled with pith and pain, with observations that will break your heart at some points, and have you grinning like a fool for the rest.’ Benjamin Law
‘Another stylish and funny outburst from the prolific Beddy Phil. Don’t be thrown by the glasses - the man has moves, on the stage and on the page.’ Tony Martin
