A Girl From Oz


In this memoir, Lyndall Hobbs bares all. Heartfelt, hilarious and down-to-earth, this book brims with Hobbs' honesty, charm and self-deprecating voice as she comes of age and leaves home to live among the stars.
 
Too large for life in suburbia, at 19 Lyndall left home to pursue her dream of being a journalist. A move to Sydney led to London, New York and LA, which led to wealthy, famous boyfriends, designer clothes and plenty of shoulder-brushing with an impressive list of A-listers. She describes the lavish parties she threw for everyone, from Jack Nicholson to Madonna and Prince Charles (though not all together!), while conveying the homesick, carefree, camera-toting youth she was.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Lyndall Hobbs

Who is Lyndall Hobbs? She's that woman you know, the one who ran track in school, entered the 'real' world before the other girls seemed to and left her hometown behind her for something bigger. The one who became a journalist and, at the tender age of twenty, traded Australia for a high-flying and glamorous (though occasionally unglamorous, too) life as a print reporter for the Daily Mail and a television reporter for ITN in London.
