Publisher's Summary

One of Australia’s favourite and most multitalented entertainers provides hilarious and honest life advice in this candid collection of cautionary tales. 

Kitty Flanagan has been locked in an industrial freezer in Western Australia and insulted about the size of her lady parts in Singapore and borne witness to the world’s most successful wife swap in suburban Sydney. It’s these valuable lessons from The University of Life that have taught her so many things, including the fact that cliches like ‘The University of Life’ are reeeally annoying. 

In these funny, true stories, Kitty provides advice you didn’t even know you needed. Useful tips on how not to get murdered while hitchhiking, how to break up with someone the wrong way and the right way, why it’s important to keep your top on while waitressing and why women between the ages of 37 and 42 should be banned from Internet dating. 

Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies is a collection of laugh-out-loud, cautionary tales from one of Australia’s favourite comedians.

Funny AF!😂

Laughed almost the entire way through, had to skip back so many times as I was missing parts from laughing to hard. Fantastic read!

If you offend easily, this ain’t the book for you 🤣

Totally loved & related often to Kitty’s witty repartee of life, love & stuff ups...

Am a fan of Kitty’s work & throughly enjoyed listening while working away on me “crafts” & laughing out aloud at her musings of her life to date...

From childhood to dating, work & later relationships Kitty has a great sense of humour & wordsmithing to help you enjoy her journey along the way.

Felt like we were sitting & having coffee (whilst I’m doing my “crafts”) & liked that there were some challenges she threw in along the way....

If you have a great sense of humour, enjoy laughing out aloud & enjoy stopping and thinking about Kittys musings, then get this book/audio 😊

Loved it

This was a fantastic book.. loved listening to Kitty tell her story while I went on my early morning walks. I’m sure everyone I passed thought I was nuts because I was chuckling away and gasping “no way!!” As I listened. Highly entertaining..

Thoroughly enjoyable.

It was great to hear Kitty read her own book and obviously not only as the author, but a performer, she reads it well. I found the anecdotes of her life interesting and amusing, often giggling aloud on public transport.
I will never use a spa in a hotel or B&B!
