Conducting a wayward journey through the underbelly of Southeast Asia, an Australian traveler peppers "Bad Karma" with swindlers, sleazeballs, and sanctimonious hippies as she puts backpacker culture through the wringer.

Praise For Bad Karma

“Sheward’s writing is fast and furious. A roller coaster off the rails, with beers.”—Adventure Travel Magazine


“The girls make a delightful comic duo. Sheward’s prose is superb.”

Backpacker Magazine


“Wild-child writer Tamara Sheward, whose adventures are recounted in a humorous collection of politically-incorrect tales of Asian drug dealers and stoned backpackers . . . is irrepressible.”—Sydney Morning Herald
