Overview

Part one of this book, The Withered of Oz, is an autobiography of the author who, as a former Stage and Screen actor, director, producer and script writer, relinquished his career when his wife suffered a devastating stroke and he chose to become her full time carer. With approaching old age, the demise of his career and the restrictions forced upon him by his wife’s condition he reviews his life since the calamity and examines his current philosophy and discovers a humorous if sometimes comically cynical attitude to his current unexpected situation. However he finds he still longs for a creative outlet to his talents and decides to become a novelist.
The result is part two of this book, The Twilight Escort Agency, a fictional story set in Surfers Paradise, on Australia’s Gold Coast, about a mythical Escort Agency for the more ‘mature’ client looking for companionship. Wet Ink Magazine, reviewed The Twilight Escort Agency as ‘A very funny book full of saucy and at times bawdy humor proving getting older doesn’t mean being over it all and is sure to make you see that sweet little old couple walking down the street in a totally different light.’
So in this edition you actually get two funny and sometimes touching and thought provoking novels for the price of one. An absolute bargain!
