My Extraordinary Life and Death

by Doug MacLeod

What exactly is The Tight Trouser Club?
Where do you buy children at bargain prices?
How do you survive a father who buries you in the garden whenever you misbehave? And whom do you contact when your wife starts to shrink?

None of these questions are answered in My Extraordinary Life and Death, though what do you expect if the author is dead?

A roller-coaster of madness and surreal comedy awaits the reader brave enough to open the pages of this truly remarkable book.
Based on a proposed amusement park ride.
