'Hard Cuddles' Launch

'Hard Cuddles' Launch

Hard Cuddles, the gritty memoir from James 'The Hammer' Harding is soon to hit the shelves.

Hard Cuddles is a graphic, authentic and often humorous autobiography of a young man’s journey into Melbourne’s underworld and nightclub scene in the recent past. This story gives the reader a rare insight into addiction, the dark art of violence and ego involved in the world of a drug dealer, debt collector and stand over man in Melbourne’s under-world scene.

An embracing family background and unwavering ability to believe he was destined for redemption allowed ‘The Hammer’ to claw his way back from the darkness and use his hard-earned experience to assist men to break the cycle of addiction and crime and re-discover their own power and spirit.

The launch for Hard Cuddles will be held at the Bonbeach Football & Netball Club on July 2, at 6pm. There will be copies of the book to buy, a Q&A with Trevor Hendy AM, and canapés provided.
