He's bold, unapologetic and opinionated. He's not one to be ripped off. Often politically incorrect, yet more observant than the most seasoned traveller, he's here to whinge. And no one does it better than The Whinging Pome. Across the Rockies By Train, Nabbing Nambia along the way, speeding past Cheap Women in a Grey City, The Whinging Pome navigates the world, taking no prisoners along the way.
In a collection of short stories reflective of a life spent taking the road less travelled, The Whinging Pome is finally unleashed in this, his debut novel. For those who enjoy tales of places and people, from all walks of life and in no particular order, The Whinging Pome To The Point is your brutally honest guide to travelling, told through terrible but definitely British humour, by a man constantly on the move.
