Lennie Lower wrote the novel Heres Luck in 1929. This novel deals with the twists and turns of fate befalling Jack Gudgeon and his feckless son Stanley. When Jacks wife Agatha suddenly leaves them, both go it alone on a wild rampage through Sydneys race courses, gambling dens, pubs and cafes.Cyril Pearl, a noted Sydney journalist and Lowers editor, described Heres Luck in the following terms: It remains pre-eminently Australias funniest book, as ageless as Pickwick or Tom Sawyer, a work of weird genius, as one reviewer put it, written by a Chaplin of words.Lower was born in Dubbo, New South Wales.

His father was a pharmacist and his mother was Florence McInerney. Educated in Sydney, Lower joined the army for a brief time before turning to journalism, where his talents as a humorist soon gained him a legion of dedicated fans and a place in Australian history. He wrote up to eight columns each week for a variety of newspapers in Sydney during the Depression and World War II.Lowers drinking was legendary hence the titles of his two best-known works.

Heres luck! is a well-known Australian drinking toast, as is also Heres another!. Lowers piece Must Drink Beer announces that the perfect job has been found - beer tasting for a research institute. Lowers description of the domestic consequences of drunkenness and hangover, have the ring of long experience about them.Lennie Lower wrote for many Australian newspapers and magazines, including The Daily Telegraph (Australia), The Sunday Telegraph, The Labor Daily and Smiths Weekly, until his death from cancer in 1947 at the age of 43.
