This audio edition read by the author, comedian, writer and actor Liam Williams

‘One of the finest comic minds of Generation Y.’ The Times

Mark is going on the trip of a lifetime: a summer touring Europe in the pay of the travel company he works for.

For his plus one, he turns to his idolised cousin, Paris. Everything Mark’s not, Paris is a man of the world with a thirst for adventure – even his name is better than Mark’s.

But after a catastrophic argument, Mark finds himself setting off alone on his voyage, instead emailing an unresponsive Paris from the road. A cocktail cruise on the Seine, mindful pastry making in Foix, a graffiti tour in Barcelona: Mark will be forced to engage with life and strangers as he never has before, with poignantly recognisable results.

But questions remain: will he ever be able to have an authentic interaction? Will Paris ever reply to his emails? And crucially, will he manage to write SEO friendly copy for every place he visits?

After all, it’s not the destination that counts: it’s the homes and experiences you encounter along the way.

Robert Popper, creator of Friday Night Dinner
Liam is a writer of vast intelligence and wit as well as an excellent storyteller. A delightful, moving and unique take on travel writing.
Katy Wix
Brilliantly written, properly funny and poignant, and such a great takedown of the more absurd aspects of life in the 21st century. Also, the scene in Barcelona involving sun cream and the e-bike tour . . . actually, genuinely, made me Laugh Out Loud.
Tom Ellen, author of All About Us
A hilarious and unexpectedly moving book, Liam Williams' wanderlust-inducing take on gentrification and Millennial angst is superbly written, and I know already that this is a book I will keep coming back to in many years to come.
Richard Roper, author of Something to Live For
Hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure. A total joy
Laura Kay, author of The Split
Such a clever premise, superbly executed . . . The perfect book for summer 2021
James Bailey, author of The Flip Side
