Product description

Product Description

In 1981, fifteen-year-old Nikki McWatters is living in a Gold Coast suburb, dragging herself through humdrum schooldays and dreaming of losing her virginity to a rock star. With three friends she starts the Vulture Club for aspiring groupies – and so begins a festival of sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll.

As Nikki gets older, her conquests get bigger and the stakes get higher. From Australian Crawl to INXS, Pseudo Echo to Duran Duran, she is living her teenage dream – but is the groupie life all it’s cracked up to be?

One Way or Another is an irresistible romp through a world of pub rock, big hair, wild nights and mornings after. With irrepressible humour and a bulging little black book, Nikki McWatters recalls an age when everything seemed possible – even if everything wasn’t such a good idea.

‘A vivid, heartfelt trip into the human side of rock ’n’ roll … painfully honest and insightful, this is a Puberty Blues for the ’80s generation.’ —Richard Lowenstein, director of Dogs in Space and He Died with a Felafel in His Hand

‘McWatters renders her story with skill, sensitivity, wit and honesty … a fascinating look into some of rock’s seedier aspects.’ —Bookseller+Publisher

‘A great Australian rock ’n’ roll read’ —Steve Kilbey

Nikki McWatters has had a varied career, from film and television acting to teaching to legal counselling. She lives in Queensland with her husband and children. One Way or Another was shortlisted for the Emerging Author Award in the Queensland Premier’s Literary Awards.

I really enjoyed this book. Being somewhat of a "pub rock" tragic of the 80's myself this book in parts took me back to the heady days of my youth. I now find myself racking my brain trying to work out who "The Poet", "Leatherpants" & "Sex on Legs" are... although I think I might have a few ideas haha. Well done Nikki... a great read indeed!

This memoir threw me back to my own experience s growing up in the 80 s and the soundtrack of those years . I found this to be a very moving and enthralling read .

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish there had of been some names 30 November 2012
By Savannah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Without the names this book fell flat. I couldn't tell if they were real rock stars or simply one hit wonder Australian bands. It needed names and there weren't any. The book was more about teenagers engaging in sex and alcohol. Her own story was more interesting I wish it had just been about that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex Drugs and Rock n Roll....OOH YEAH! 25 April 2012
By Lucy the Boss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
OMG I love this book. If you love Duran Duran, INXS or are into eighties music you will love it too. It is hilarious and shocking, sometimes its sad. It has a good message about self esteem. I would definatley recommend this book to men and women...(but not for kids this one is a bit graphic in places).
