Jenny Valentish’s fourth book, Everything Harder Than Everyone Else, explores the fine line between hedonism and endurance, including the feats of porn stars. It seemed like the natural follow-up to her Walkley-nominated book about addiction and impulsivity, Woman of Substances – in part a mea culpa, but also a heavily researched resource for the public, academics and clinicians alike. As a journalist, she writes for The Guardian, the ABC and The Age, but her time is most preferably spent bodybuilding and kickboxing. As a writing teacher, she also runs the free Facebook community Sundays We Write.
