Around The World In Farty Haze by Simon Fawkes

Around The World In Farty Haze


Around The World In Farty Haze by Simon Fawkes

Nineteen-year-old Simon Fawkes suffers from a spasmodic wind problem as he hauls his fat bulk through this hilarious account of a journey through the Americas. From seedy San Francisco sex clubs through stomach upsets in Mexico, uncontrollable flatulence at Machu Picchu, becoming stranded in a snowdrift in Bolivia to being sick at a foam party, the tale is told in a way that makes the tears stream. His humour operates at many levels; from the subtle to the toilet. But this is much more than just a tale about farting. Skilfully crafted, we gain a witty insight into the places and characters the author encounters in this illuminating travel story. 'A bizarre cross between Bill Bryson and Viz' Fairlight and Richmond Times 'Michael Palin with wind...a mix of fantastic humour and fascinating insights' Penny Trait, Yorkshire Evening Telegraph 'Superb...a breath of fresh air' R Spoker, New Lad Magazine
