This is an inspirational, laugh-out-loud story of one small family's triumph over unbelievable odds. Their adventures and challenges of job satisfaction, fishing, family, cultural differences, and death is told with a self-deprecating humour - as Roger and Sue inherit the Aussie witticism.
When his parents visit the annual Earl's Court Motor Show to buy a new car but return with a boat instead - turmoil follows. Later he is almost killed on a disastrous wild horse ride on Rotten Row but is he really guilty of the police accusation of fraud? As a teenager John explores his sexuality, only to fall in love for all the wrong reasons.
John's self-deprecating reminisces are often illuminating as the reader accompanies him on his bittersweet journey of both triumph and disaster.
John's first book Reluctant Hero, is about his dad, Bill, who was a Lancaster bomber pilot in WW2. Tripping Over is its sequel. Sex, Lies and Crazy People, published in 2014, follows on from Tripping Over. They are all true stories.
