Hot Off the Press! BACK COVER for Author Justin Sheedy’s Upcoming Book “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer”
Author Justin Sheedy is delighted to see his upcoming book, “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer”, taking shape. Out for this Christmas, “Memoirs of a G0-Go Dancer” is Sheedy’s 4th book and long-awaited sequel to his 1st, “Goodbye Crackernight”, his ‘shared memoir’ of growing up in 1970s Australia – when a child’s proudest possession was not a smart phone but a 2nd-hand bike. “Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer” (yes, Sheedy’s 1st job out of school) is his portrait of teenage in the 1980s featuring not only all the magic, triumph and terror of being a 1980s teenager but also the world events, issues, culture and Fashion Crimes that shaped the decade.
MEMOIRS OF A GO-GO DANCER! Justin Sheedy’s first job out of school was a symbol of his rebellion against the 1980s – a decade so lame it cried out for any other. Crackernight, the annual fireworks festival of his childhood, was gone. So was childhood. Justin’s teenage would be a search for new fireworks. He would find them. In his legendary schoolteachers, in questioning his elders, in playing rock and roll, in marching against nuclear madness, and in that scariest of all things known to Man: GIRLS. And all that was before he became a Go-Go Dancer! Then the fun really started.
