Life was not a bowl of charm-soaked cherries for the miserable Helen Razer. She worked in discount advertising and wore elastic pants. She did, however, have a long-term girlfriend whose announcement one summer day that she was leaving left the author with nothing. A bewildered Razer takes the advice of her beauty therapist and soon embarks on one hundred dates inside a calendar year. This book is that account. Will she get over the ex? Will she find true love, or even someone to boff her? All will be revealed, in a naked, funny and frankly embarrassing record of a life lived in apps and desperation.
Helen is joined in this vaccine against Valentine’s Day by ABC Radio National's Paul Barclay. Come listen to tales of heartbreak, or even find a way to correct your own.
For more than two decades, Helen Razer has been broadcasting and writing her way into disagreement of various scales. She has been employed as a contributor by The Age and The Australian, and is now a columnist on dissent with Crikey and gardening correspondent for The Saturday Paper. Helen has produced four previous books of humorous non-fiction and her frequently published thoughts on the impotence of current public debate are extended in A Short History of Stupid.
