Beer & Meth: Inside Capitalist Czech Republic

by Jakub Ryska

So you get up every day at 7 a.m., slip into a traffic jam and get shouted at by your boss for ten hours. Maybe you dream of something bigger. Well, you might be delighted to know that there’s a country where people do all that for $1,200 a month. That place is the Czech Republicâ??birthplace of Donald Trump’s first wife, the words “robot” and “Budweiser,” and the very best methamphetamine in the whole world.

The writing duo Jakub Ryska and Pavel Splichal have earned cult status through their outrageous and surgically precise descriptions of such a place and the fights, dreams, and desperation of its middle class. For seven years on their blog Prigl.cz they managed to offend possibly every social group in the country, including naive university graduates, marketing nerds, daddy’s darlings, car tuning enthusiasts, and esoterica devotees, but also failed artists and self-proclaimed intellectuals working in call centers.

Their articles have attracted millions of readers and the attention of the mainstream Czech media. Their book, Ã?vod do současné trapnosti (“Introduction to Contemporary Awkwardness”), has been nominated for multiple literary awards, winning none of them, presumably because of its harsh language and total lack of regard towards the Czech literary and cultural establishment.

And because the zealousness of the middle class knows no bounds, the book is now available to you right now. This essential manual for surviving school, work, and the unemployment office is also a great gift for all the people you don’t likeâ??especially those you’re too afraid to tell openly how much they get on your nerves.

So don’t hesitate to scroll up and click the BUY button.

From Jarrow to Java

by Joe Writeson

A book based on some of the unique characters and situations encountered in the course of a large construction project in East Java during a crucial time in Indonesia’s history .

The cast includes all the usual suspects Europeans, Australians, Americans etc. but the starring roles are Indonesians.

Centred around the building of an Independent Power Plant consisting of eight coal-fired power stations, distribution system and extensive infrastructure with over ten thousand employees at the height of construction activities.

The account is based around the job, the impact on the area, the people, the ladies, the pubs, the problems, the perceptions…and misconceptions. Featuring an introduction to Javanese customs and culture plus their effect on interaction between expats and locals, including the often weird and wonderful way that Indonesians view foreigners ….plus how some Westerners behave when given the ‘keys to the sweetie shop’

The timescale covers immediately before, during and after the downfall of the Soeharto regime.

A lot of the characters recur throughout the stories, some of the chapters are linked or cross referenced.

All of the names have been changed and some players and scenarios are a sum of several people or events, on reflection I have removed some altogether to protect the innocent and prevent the guilty from repercussions by angry wives, girlfriendsâ?¦and mothers.

These are all my own work and based on actual events that I was directly involved in or witnessed personally, no hearsay, urban legends or second hand gossip.

Although based in Indonesia the anecdotes will appeal to anyone who would like to expand their social and geographical boundaries, and just possibly gain an insight into just how other people live, laugh, endure and survive ��

The Bin and the Bomb: A Humorous Travel Story about an Apartment in Paris

by Matthew Felix

Matthew’s minuscule seventh-floor apartment has a top-to-bottom view of the Eiffel Tower. But it’s what the little studio lacks that sets it apart. Bathing. Using the toilet. Avoiding hypothermia.
