by Nicholas Walker

This is the hilarious follow up to Going Around the Bend on the QE2 (available on Kindle) where Nick now runs away to America to escape his proctologist. He is welcomed by the American people and delighted to find that they love his accent. As always the outspoken Nick, runs into many situations some of which would seem to be unbelievable, but they are true: he meets a number of Hollywood Stars and has a flaming row with one of them, he is interrogated by the FBI, lives with a top model, has a fight with a mobster and sadly witnesses the American’s reaction to 9/11! He falls out with the police and falls in with three lovely ladies as he lives as an illegal immigrant for two years in one of America’s loveliest towns, Laguna Beach CA.

This is the travelogue of a man who is trouble prone and who is lucky enough to encounter hilarious situations wherever he goes…it is, as always, the story of a man who is not quite sane!

Goin’ Garf! (Memories of the Caribbean Island of San Andres)

by Lawrence Bohme

In 1975, London-born New York-bred adventurer Lawrence Bohme set up his crafts shop on the remote West Indian island of San Andres, a possession of Colombia. With the difference that its people are the English-speaking descendants of Jamaican slaves brought there by the British, before the island was ceded to what was then New Spain, in 1822. Lawrence evokes the islanders’ unshakeably “Afro-Victorian” view of the world and themselves, their pungent and often graphic patois harkening back to pre-Industrial England as well as Africa, and their strange dream that the English will one day return to free them from the “panyas”, that is, the “Spaniards”, who for a century had already become Colombians… Here is the loving but unsentimental “guide book” which Lawrence wrote while living on this island of the south-western Caribbean, illustrated with his own pen and ink drawings.

A word about the authorĂ¢?¦

Lawrence Bohme was born in 1942 in London, to an English mother and a German refugee father, emigrating to Vancouver, Canada, after the war. At age 14, Lawrence travelled to Mexico with his mother, who wanted to become a painter. It was in Mexico City that Lawrence learned to speak the first of his current five languages. The small family later lived in Jamaica, British West Indies, and in New York’s Greenwich Village.

In 1960 Lawrence went on to study at the University of Madrid, where he acquired the second name of “Lorenzo”, and later also at the Sorbonne in Paris. In 1965, finding himself in San Francisco, he sailed to Rio on a freighter to fulfill his dream of living in a favela, staying in Brazil five years. Always with the writing of a book about his travels in mind, he spent two years in Haiti and three years in Colombia, living also on the islands of San Andres, Grand Cayman, Saint Martin and Saint Barths, where he worked as a leather craftsman and pen-and-ink postcard artist.

He returned to Europe in 1981, becoming a translator for UNESCO in Paris and eventually finding his way back to southern Spain. There, he settled in the olive-farming town of Montefrio and wrote several “artistic and historical guide books” about his village Montefrio and also Granada, the city of the Alhambra Palace. He has been at work for the past ten years on his memoir, “Lorenzo, The Story of a Very Long Youth”, and has thus far completed seven volumes “each one the length of a normal-sized novel”, which are published separately on Amazon for Kindle. He is now working on the last three volumes of the series, which reaches its cataclysmic end in Paris, in the year 1983.

A journalist recently asked Lorenzo why he calls his book the story of a “very long” youth. The author explained that his youth went on much longer than is considered normal, given that it wasn’t until the age of forty-one that an “emotional earthquake” forced him to finally start “growing up”. He added, with a trace of irony, that the title also expresses his gratitude to “a God I can’t help believing in for granting me so many years to make an ass of myself”.
