BUFFALO FUNERAL – Ange Takats

<noautolink>buffalo funeral.png</noautolink> Twenty-two year old Ange Takats has no idea what is about to hit her when she arrives in Bangkok to take up a job as a TV news foreign correspondent. Her Australian journalism degree proves handy when she’s granted a rare interview with Burmese freedom leader Aung San Suu Kyi. But textbooks won’t help her when she is being chased by a tiger in a Buddhist monastery… confronted with heroin addicts in Hanoi... or having her breasts massaged with Tiger Balm while filming a story about Thai boob jobs.

Ange dives into the bizarre side of Thai reporting life and finds herself running from rockets at a rainmaking festival… and saying a prayer at a funeral for a water buffalo. As if her day job isn’t colourful enough, Thailand also gives Ange the chance to pursue her passion for music. She lands a gig in a folk rock band with a couple of whisky swigging Thai musicians who give her an education she’ll never forget. Between the exotic assignments and late-night jam sessions, Ange falls in love with a Romanian Canadian medical student in the jungles of Laos. She’s faced with a dilemma: Should she follow the man who just might be ‘the one’ or keep living her life of adventure in the Land of Smiles?

BEYOND THE ROAD - S. Sean (the magician) Tretheway

<noautolink>beyond road.jpg</noautolink> Many of you will remember the book launch for The Roadless Traveller a few years ago - what a party! Well, S. Sean (the magician) Tretheway, has done it again. Beyond the Road carries on the story of Jack Slack, Blazer and Hollie as they adventure across the Pacific Ocean to find tropical paradise and more!

Dare I say that Sean has created a book even more fun than the last! It's exciting, sexy and inspiring - a book in which we will probably all find something a little different hidden in the pages.
