"The funniest book I've read in the last 24 hours"

"A funny, feel-good book"
Soldier Magazine

"Bill Bryson with a bayonet"
OLife Magazine

"If you had primed Bill Bryson with a couple of helpings of magic mushrooms you wouldn't have come up with anything half so funny as John Donoghue's marvellously funny meanderings along the highways and byways of Britain... It's a fun book - even for those without a sense of humour - and will have you laughing out loud."

Shakespeare My Butt!
'Marsupial Elvis' to 'No Place' ... ramblings, meanderings, digressions ... and a dog
by John Donoghue

Confessions of a man with too much time on his hands!

A charming tale of a year in the life of a serial 'pointless project' addict. Written with warmth and depth, interspersed with humorous childhood memories, witty recollections of military service and unorthodox observations on life.

Ramble, meander and digress away, discovering non-barking dogs, the secret of excess and places that don't exist.

Humiliate ants, get annoyed at goldfish and take up the noble sport of matlepiecing.

Go back in time, enjoy biscuits brown, feel the fuzz.

Shootings, monkeys, hurricanes and much, much more.
