A Tale of Buddhas & Bandits ‘Kerr is the Bill Bryson of the Playstation generation’

Billy Kerr had only gone out for a bacon roll but
in his hungover state had vowed to
find Buddha a more fitting home.
The only problem was that the Buddhas new home
happened to be in Bangkok.
And so begins a journey that will transport Billy
and his partner Ellen around the world and
back again. Trouble is never far away from this
hapless duo. They stumble across a Scottish
themed brothel, buy hippo penis cream instead
of malaria pills and highjack a stage to sing
the Scottish Anthem.
But all the fun of travel soon evaporates.
An incident occurs that turns the couples’s
happy go lucky experience in to a nightmare
and brings them close to death and even
closer to madness.
Startlingly honest, ridiculously funny and horrifyingly frightening, A Tale of Buddhas and Bandits is the true
story of two years in the life of an itinerant couple.

  • A Must Read

    By DavidMearns
    I can honestly say this is the most moving and laugh out loud book I have ever read. I had never heard of Billy Kerr before this book but now I put him up their with my top five favourite authors. The 49p price also makes it a no brainer. If you like travel writing this is a must. roll on the follow up.

  • Brilliant read

    By TommiEdinburgh
    Thoroughly enjoyed this. Fantastic read with loads of different emotions within it. The tales of the people met along the way and the good times had is inspiring, all of that while going through difficult personal circumstances and of course different incidents along the way. Great read!

    I love the image painted of Paris. I'm Brazilian and I felt the same. Very funny stories from my home place Rio. I would read again. I think a Portuguese version would go down well. Love the flow. Love the book and look forward to next one.

  • Very intresting book

    By Francis le tour
    I agree with the other review. It has a Bill Bryson type humour. Loved the explosive start and the frightning unexpected ending. Would be nice to see where he is now?
