He Died With a Felafel In His Hand Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of He Died With a Felafel In His Hand

In HE DIED WITH A FELAFEL IN HIS HAND, John Birmingham capitalises on his share-house accommodation experiences with 89 different flat mates and what they had in abundance -- dirt, rats, roaches, garbage, smelly laundry, beer, drugs, parties, sex and good humour. It is an hilarious account of the Australian share house scene in the 1980's - 1990's -- one which will no doubt reinforce landlord's decision to reject students as potential tenants.
