John SafranThe most achingly funny, heartsplittingly tragic and brilliantly written book youll read this year.

Benjamin LawLiam Pieper was raised by his bohemian parents to believe in freedom and creativity, and that theres nothing wrong with smoking a little marijuana to make life more interesting.A fast learner, Liam combined hippie self-actualisation with gen Y entrepreneurialism. By his early teens he had a fledgling drug habit, and a thriving business selling pot around the suburbs of Melbourne from the back of his pushbike.

He picked up important life skills, like how to befriend a deranged jujitsu master, how to impress his girlfriends mother by getting arrested in front of her, and how to negotiate pocket money based on how much he was charging his parents for an ounce.But from these highs (chemical, financial and otherwise), Liams life fell to dramatic lows. The muddled flower child became a petty criminal and an amoral coke monster. After a family tragedy and then his arrest on several counts of possession and trafficking, Liam had to consider: had it been a mistake to adopt the practices of a counterculture without any of its ethics?Hilarious, compelling and sometimes heartbreaking, The Feel-Good Hit of the Year is a memoir about family, addiction and learning how to live with yourself, from a sharp and original new Australian voice.Liam Pieper is a truly gifted writer and storyteller.

The Feel-Good Hit of the Year is often hilarious, at times heartbreaking and always a fascinating view into an unconventional but compelling life. Lally KatzMade my skin clammy and heart palpitate like all good memoirs of a misspent youth should. Tim RogersI always knew Liam was talented and Id always suspected he had a couple screws loose, and now I have proof of both.

The Feel-Good Hit of the Year is a brilliant piece of work. Anna KrienTo lead a deranged, tragic and funny life is one thing, but to make a book this unsentimentally beautiful out of it is nothing short of criminal. Read it before every other goddamn person does. Benjamin LawVery funny and packed with inventive expressions . . . This reads like a wittier, Gen-Y answer to perennial sellers such as Howard Marks Mr Nice and James Freys A Million Little Pieces. Australian Bookseller+PublisherI promise you, this book is good. I-cant-stop-reading good. Stay-up-until-1a.m.-on-a-weeknight good. Next-big-thing good.

Readings.com.auThis carefully constructed memoir deftly touches on some of the most difficult subjects: addiction, shame, guilt and the bitter-sweet troubles of family relationships. This is a clever book executed by a skilful writer with a razor-sharp wit . . . Piepers book is crazy good. He had me hooked from the first page to the last.

Krissy KneenThis book is so good that it makes reading other books less enjoyable. Boy, can he write. Angie Hart
