High Season is the story of Jim Hearn, a working-class boy made good-and very, very bad. It's a tale about living on the edge, restaurant kitchens, drugs and addiction. And it's a story of waking up from a heroin hell to discover real love, family and success.But what happens when Jim, three young chefs and a waiter do what it takes to feed Paris Hilton and her sizeable entourage after they turn up for lunch without warning? The highs and lows of this particular day climax in an unexpected tragedy that will change Jim's life forever.Raw, unapologetic and behind-the-scenes in an utterly fascinating way High Season is a rites-of-passage story, a cautionary tale about heroin, and a celebration of hospitality.Jim Hearn is a scriptwriter and chef. He has written five, original, feature-length screenplays as well as worked on the script for Chopper and an adaptation of Andrew McGahan's novel Last Drinks. Jim has also been employed as a script assessor for the NSW FTO and has a BA (Hons) from Southern Cross University. High Season: A Memoir is his first book.
