A new immigrant’s impressions of life in provincial New Zealand (after coming from a large city in South Africa) … and there were one or two rather funny adventures, nay escapades in “Sleepy Hollow” from time to time.
The author and his wife contrast life in colourful, vibrant South Africa with calm and kindly New Zealand – and with large dashes of humour offer much understanding of, and sympathy with the social attitudes of the two worlds
Ray Carruthers is an extensive world traveller and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still ‘sliding down the razor blade of life’, stuck on a deserted (other than a few brilliant rugby players) island at the bottom of the world near Antarctica, where he is ‘trying to throw a double six’ to get off and go out into the real world – but he doesn’t know where!
PS: The paperback should be out later today. (JUst go to Amazon: http://www.amazon.com)
