Still considered one of Australia's funniest books ever, Here's Luck is Lennie Lower's most inspired lunacy.


A wild and uproarious masterpiece set in Sydney during the early depression years, it follows the hilarious exploits of its hero and narrator, Jack Gudgeon. Deserted by his long-suffering wife and gorgon-like sister-in-law, Gudgeon and his dreamy, disaster-prone teenage son, Stanley, manage to stumble into a never-ending series of adventures and catastrophes from which they invariably emerge with monumental hangovers. they are joined by a wonderful assortment of eccentric characters, who always materialize to enliven the parties that Gudgeon and son hold in their increasingly derelict home.
Originally published during the Great Depression, Here's Luck  was essential reading for those needing cheering up and Lower's genuine style - a blend of realism, absurdity, satire and wit - has rendered his work timeless.

 'It remains pre-eminently Australia's funniest book, as ageless as Pickwick or tom Sawyer , a work of 'weird genius', as one reviewer put it, written by a "Chaplin" of words' - Cyril Pearl
'Gloriously disreputable; mercilessly funny' - Richard Glover
