"…a hilarious memoir about enlightenment and old age…"
"…a superb lead-in to Frank's travel memoirs proper…"
"…honest, whimsical, and keenly observing…"
"…Frank is a wonderful story-teller, I really warmed to him…"
As Frank Kusy turns 27 he is unexpectedly put in charge of an old people's home in Clapham, South London. Driven to distraction by a crazy cast of characters he seeks solace in Buddhism, only to find himself up to his ears in plasticine pigs and marathon chanting sessions. Will he make his mum happy by holding down a 'proper' job? Will he make her unhappy by becoming a writer? Will he get to share cheese sandwiches with Kevin in Kathmandu? And will he be forced to exchange his underpants in Japan?
