THE IDIOT BOY WHO FLEW by Graham Reid
NZ$24.95 (RRP NZ$29.95)

Winner of the TravCom Readers' Choice Award 2010!

    Award-winning journalist and travel writer Graham Reid explores the high roads and low life of travel; concluding with a dark journey through history, literature, faith and Southern Italy -- in search of a saint who could fly. Funny, moving and insightful stories from an astute and wry observer of human nature who has an ear for language and an empathy for his characters.

Graham Reid's first book 'Postcards From Elsewhere' was awarded the Whitcoulls Travel Book of the Year for 2006.

"As delightful as you'd expect from such a skilled storyteller... marvellously accurate snapshots of people and places from elsewhere; pictures in words which amuse and inspire, entertain and inform."

Bookshop sales (shops we recommend)

Buying online at Public Address Books pays a much larger royalty to the author than when you buy from a regular bookshop. Additionally, our books are usually lower-priced here than when you buy from a regular bookshop, and we also offer the added bonus of allowing you to get your book signed or inscribed by the author. But if you strongly prefer to buy from a bookshop then please favour one of our recommended independent booksellers throughout New Zealand. Click here to find out more.
