Flying to Disneyland PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Flying to Disneyland free pdf Fat and over forty, Ethne is not happy. In a flat above, thin and over forty, Derek is frightened. Mortimer comes into their lives with panache and pathos, and spins fantasies for them through which they discover surprising strengths within themselves. The saintly dog Rabinowitz, the snobbish bully-boy Percy, the nicotine-stained junk-dealer Olive, all contribute to the unfolding drama of what may well be the supreme moment of their lives, and "Mother" crouches malevolently in the corner, hoping to entrap them in her egotistical web. This humorous, absorbing story deals with a variety of stressful human problems including love (requited and unrequited), sinister religions, astral travel, the Big C, dog training and homophobia, made all the more poignant by its lightness of touch. The tale is set in the eastern suburbs of Johannesburg, but could equally well have taken place in New York, Sydney or London.
