What's the secret to JP's sexual prowess? How does Howard beat the buffet every time?
What does Vod really think about drink, drugs and Salmon Rushdie? And will Kingsley's
diary spill his true feelings for Josie? (hopefully not as stomach-churning as Oregon's
sext messages with Professor Shales ... )
Fresh Meat: The Essential Guide for New Undergraduates/the Future Unemployed is
a real guide to the first year of student life - the one the preachy official brochures
and prospectuses don't tell you about. From moving into a student house to hangover cures,
from freshers' week to choosing courses and, more importantly, friends, the book records
every detail - disgusting, exciting, tragic and triumphant - as the young ones stumble
through university life. A scrap book of diary entries, emails, manifestos and guidelines
(including Howard's Rules for Everything and schema for calling home) it is crammed with
saucy text messages, music playlists, facebook requests, film scripts, poems, photos,
drawings and paintings, as well as the housemates' musings on life, uni and everything.
