'A great Australian rock 'n' roll read' - Steve Kilbey
In 1981, fifteen-year-old Nikki McWatters is living in a Gold Coast suburb, dragging herself through humdrum schooldays and dreaming of losing her virginity to a rock star. With three friends she starts the Vulture Club for aspiring groupies - and so begins a festival of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll.
As Nikki gets older, her conquests get bigger and the stakes get higher. From Australian Crawl to INXS, Pseudo Echo to Duran Duran, she is living her teenage dream - but is the groupie life all it's cracked up to be?
"One Way or Another" is an irresistible romp through a world of pub rock, big hair, wild nights and mornings after. With irrepressible humour and a bulging little black book, Nikki McWatters recalls an age when everything seemed possible - even if everything wasn't such a good idea.
'A vivid, heartfelt trip into the human side of rock 'n' roll ... Painfully honest and insightful, this is a "Puberty Blues" for the '80s generation.' - Richard Lowenstein, director of "Dogs in Space" and "He Died with a Felafel in His Hand"

The first and only official book from ZAYN. Global superstar ZAYN shares a photographic journey of his life since leaving One Direction.

"This book is my diary of a period that I would like to share with you all. I hope that there are things in the book that contextualise some of the moments and memories we have all shared together. There are things I address in the book that are very personal to me, things that I have never told anyone, things I still find hard to talk about. It's a part of a journey I'm still on."—ZAYN

 ZAYN opens up with this collection of thoughts, inspiration, and never-before-seen personal photographs.
