The first deals primarily with Magarey’s two years of solo world travel, the other with his deep but difficult relationship with ‘the wise jorl tender Penny’ back cover. The travel is scary and hilarious but it’s the journey through mental illness and love that really got me.

Why did I win so many of the competitions I really wanted to win, and why, on the occasions I lost, did my losses seem to result from a special, a chosen-feeling, kind of bad luck? A striking and original book, brilliantly carried through and superbly written.
