bookshelves: biographical, travel

This is a good guy book...by a relatively good guy, if you discount a few swear words and a lot of intoxication. He has written this funny, informative, unusual look at his second stay in the South Pacific, and it'll appeal to the guy who thinks it might be nice to leave it all behind and head on out to a primitive life among the swaying palms. It won't be quite that idyllic, though, and after reading this book, you'll see why.

Nevertheless, the author's sense of humor makes the trip worth taking. Put on a flowery-print shirt, kick off your shoes and relax on into it. Escapist lit.? You bet- and the author would be proud!
