    The Fence-Painting Fortnight of Destiny
    The Fence-Painting Fortnight of Destiny
    A Memoir
    As I look back over my life, I see great lessons learnt from revered spiritual teachers, but also from friends, strangers and even the odd junkie prostitute. I remember moments of enlightenment that arrived with a bang, and moments born of the self - reflection only true boredom can provide. I made a few decisions while painting a fence once. Those decisions turned out to be very noisy indeed.' Comedian and radio and TV personality Meshel Laurie was once Michelle Laurie, whose story begins in Queensland. Michelle survived her Catholic schooldays but by Year Nine had morphed into Meshel, who daydreamed of moving to Melbourne - home of Dogs in Space and the back room of the Espy. Meshel's insider's perspective on the 1990s comedy scene is intimate and more than a little surprising. She paints a picture of a close - knit environment and tells before - they - were - famous stories about up - and - comers who are today's household names, and about the kindness of comic superstars she encountered along the way: Dave Hughes, Julia Morris, Rove, Wil Anderson, Wendy Harmer and others. We find out about the workings of an inner - city brothel, what it's like to be 'the girl on Rove' and how fence - painting can help save a life. The Fence - Painting Fortnight of Destiny is an honest and heartfelt look at life in all its messiness and unpredictability.
