Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the artist attacked by the entire waitstaff of a Chinese restaurant in New York after he dared criticize the lo mein, to a splendid anteater served for Thanksgiving dinner, this collection of travel disasters is guaranteed to make you rethink those vacation plans. Before you pack your bags consider some of the many ways that the trip of a lifetime can bring you all the joy of a life sentence. In this outrageously funny anthology of vacation horror stories you'll spend one too many nights in Tunisia and flee nightmarish holidays that stretch from Haare to Eternity. This book is guaranteed to make you unfasten your seatbelt for the belly laugh of the travel season as you are trying to figure out why your wallet disappeared. The hilarious sequel to the national bestseller I Should Have Stayed Home.

Synopsis:

"Looking forward to your summer rental? Think again."- Publisher's Weekly Book of The Day "A funny and insightful book that reminds all travelers that sometimes worst-case scenarios do come true. While all relate nightmare trips abroad, each is told with a sense of humor that ultimately transforms the nightmare into a useful lesson for us all." - Santa Cruz Sentinel Rapoport's anthology goes straight for the belly laugh. - St. Petersburg Times "What makes this collection so appealing is the ordinariness of the victims."- New York Times
