A Fool in Paradise by Neil Hutchison $14.95

A Fool in Paradise by Neil Hutchison

From the author of "Money Number One"

Following hot on the heels of his best seller, Money Number One, Neil Hutchinson continues his in-depth investigation into the tourist playground of Pattaya. This collection of short stories, originally published individually under the pseudonym 'A Fool in Paradise', form a collage of insights into the machinations of this fantastic city on the eastern seaboard of Thailand.

Anyone who has read Money Number One will enjoy this follow-up book as it reinforces the conclusions drawn and advice presented in the former through the personal experiences of the author. The tales are fast-paced, humourous, well written and ALL TRUE. Well almost.

Churchill quipped that "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm." If that is true, then Neil is a success story because his love and enthusiasm for Pattaya and its people has not diminished over the years. The highs, lows, ups, downs, laughter and tears portray a convincing analysis of the human condition. As Neil says, "Pattaya is to a writer what a room full of fruit bowls is to an artist."

The last story, 'Footprints in the Sand', is a particularly poignant tale of just how the city can affect its visitors and guests, even those who should know better. Written with his heart firmly on his sleeve, it proves that no matter how smart we think we are or how old we get, we just never learn. This tale is a 'must read' for any foreign male contemplating a long-term liaison with a Thai lady.

"Using the pen name 'A Fool in Paradise' is not an accident. The opinion of both myself and I suspect, many others, is that I am probably the biggest fool in a city literally teeming with them. I am at my most stupid when the subject of relationships comes up so be warned. I swear if I live a thousand years I will never understand women." The Author

"He is mad past recovery, but yet he has lucid intervals." Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) Spanish author
