Frank Kusy Thanks for fantastic review on Amazon, Joann, next book will be out soon. This one not as funny - unless you enjoy (very) dark humor!
Frank Kusy Okay Joann, it was 30 years ago but I'll give it my best shot. It was a 'piercing' thing, short and stubby (yellow, copper?) with 3 prongs facing up…moreOkay Joann, it was 30 years ago but I'll give it my best shot. It was a 'piercing' thing, short and stubby (yellow, copper?) with 3 prongs facing up from the tongue and a round 'holding' disc under the tongue to keep it in place. Natalie showed it me and said 'If I ever meet a man who geths on my nervth by talking too much, I'll drug him in his thleep and th'ick to him. That'll th'up him up!'

Thanks for asking that question, btw, Joann, I may have to edit the book to make that point (if you pardon the pun) clearer :)(less)

PUSHKAR – GET BLESSED!

A charming oasis on the very edge of the Great Thar Desert, Pushkar is one of those places where you come for a day and end up spending a week.

I still remember my first impressions of the place – a small jewel in the navel of India, all ablaze with its colourful mix of pilgrims, hippies, merchants and holy men, its outdoor menagerie of cows, pigs, dogs and monkeys, and most of all its unique b... Read more of this blog post »

Through this cathartic, and totally absorbing, book Tony is evidently trying to understand – and to forgive – a needy, narcissistic, idealistic father who was neglectful, obsessive, and driven by demons. Demons which compel him to take risks and to e ...more

“My meal arrived. It was a bowl of tepid, green curried water with two spinach leaves floating in it. The waiter called it 'vegetable soup'. I called it inedible slop.”
Frank Kusy, Kevin and I in India

“After a lifetime of soft, easy living in the West, one's buttocks take an awful hammering out here. Backpacking around India is just one long round of sitting on bone-hard, chafing, bruising and generally uncomfortable seats-whether in buses our trains, or restaurants or cinemas. There is no such thing as a padded seat in the whole country.”
Frank Kusy, Kevin and I in India

“Few of us could speak the other's language, but all of us had by now discovered the lodge's unique 'outside toilet'…which transcended all national barriers. The lodge owner wouldn't let you use it unless you promised to lock yourself in with a special key. Everybody thought this odd, but they understood his concern once inside. The loo was just two parallel blocks of wood laid either side of a big hole in the floor. You went in, squatted down on the blocks, felt the gust of chill air wafting up your nether regions, looked through legs, and watched the bottom fall out of your world for a sheer drop of two thousand feet! The reason for locking the door was obvious. Any unwitting interloper who swung it inwards when you were squatting over that hole was certain to knock you off your perch and straight down it. And that would be a one-way trip to oblivion. With your trousers round your ankles”
