Life Plans on Dive Bar Napkins

Out of stock - dispatches within 5-7 business days

Kidnapped in the most expensive taxi in Mexico. Living like Frank Sinatra with a UTI in Palm Springs. Avoiding exploding rubbish bins in new Tokyo. Sleeping with man-eating spiders in Guatemala.

For better or (usually) worse, major life decisions start as a scribble on the back of a bar napkin for Paul Manser - a writer whose existence is mostly made up of stupid choices and wildly ambitious travel insurance claims.

Life Plans on Dive Bar Napkins is a book of experiences Paul always wanted to get into print, but worried that some tut-tutting travel editor would strip of all the best jokes. You could say that the book is an unnecessary act of self-indulgence by an egotist who shirks life's responsibilities, drinks too much and thinks too little. And you'd probably be right.

Paul wrote this book for the people who want to experience something different, who drink because they enjoy it, and whose life plans begin as incoherent scrawls on the back of a dive bar napkin.
