I Left My Tent in San Francisco

(2011)
A non fiction book by

 
 
More hilarious tales of holiday disaster from the bestselling author of The Tent, The Bucket and Me.

It's 1989, and Emma and her best friend Dee head to the USA to make their fortune. But completely inept and virtually unemployable, they discover that they can't even get a job in McDonald's.

Forced to travel from California to New York with only pennies in their pockets, they bounce from scrape to scrape, surviving on their wits and the kindness of strangers. Bad luck and misfortune throw everything their way -- snakes, earthquakes, black magic and incontinent dogs. They even get kidnapped by a sex-crazed midget in a Ferrari. This never happened to Jack Kerouac.

Startlingly honest and ridiculously funny, I Left My Tent in San Franciscois the miraculous story of how the hapless pair made it back alive to tell the disastrous tale.
