Drink, Smoke, Pass Out : An Unlikely Spiritual Journey
Judith Lucy's Spiritual Journey takes us on Judith's path from being a child so Catholic that she wanted to be a nun, to a genuinely curious adult looking for meaning - via atheism, advanced yoga, astral travel and a whole lot more. Based on the popular ABC television series of the same name, this book features her trademark blend of her 'brutal frankness and dazzling wit' (The Age), and will appeal to anyone who has wondered about the bigger questions in life, as well as fans of her bestselling memoir, The Lucy Family Alphabet.

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).
