Synopsis

Don't Tell Mum Hair-raising Messages Home from Gap-year Travellers by Simon Hoggart, Emily Monk

The e-mail home is an essential part of every gap-year back-packers journey. Where once the news of a fresh tattoo, the purchase of a gold Mercedes or a village chief's proposal of marriage would have had to wait until a traveller's return, those left at home are now able to follow every trial and tribulation of their loved one's attempt to 'find-themselves'. Simon Hoggart and Emily Monk have collected together the funniest, most surreal, most alarming gap-year e-mails into a treasure-trove of correspondence. Accompanied by their wicked commentary, Don't Tell Mum invites us to live the gap-year experience without even having to leave the country.
