Lemon Andersen grew up in a world where doped-up adults nod off standing up, where syringes serve as water pistols, where stepfathers strip cars for a living and where kids like him sold crack from behind barred doors. Here he samples his one-man show and tells ABC Radio National's Robbie Buck learn how he turned the stuff of life into performance and book.
