This book is 97.5% true. It tells of a man’s great escape from modern techno-life, as well as a desire to prove that John Donne, the 17th Century preacher, is a total loser. All ‘men’ are islands, dear John. The story occurs in a bitter jungle full of leeches, talking carpet pythons and very annoying Christians. It is a story about pain and beauty, prison and freedom, torture and love – life, in other words.
