RAGE by Julie Mac

Julie Mac will launch her new book RAGE: A Sharpies Journal, Melbourne 1974 to 1980

A raw and real life story of Sharp as you’ve never read before. Follow Julie Mac and the Sharpies as they fight, punch and kick their way through their turbulent teenage years on the unsuspecting streets of Melbourne. It was a time when running from the cops, avoiding the ticket inspectors, drinking, spewing and rooting were all in a nights work, looking Sharp!

RAGE is now available in the Skins ‘n’ Sharps Store. A Limited First Edition of 250 books will have a card insert out of 250.
