Price: $15.62
In early 1980s Britain, one in eight people are out of work and a generation of young people are leaving Britain in their droves. For Patrick Rust, travelling to Israel and onwards to Egypt looks like a way out of the winter dole queue. What could be easier than spending six months in the sunshine working the land and meeting girls from all around the world? Unfortunately for an unstable Patrick, things aren’t as clear-cut as they are in Thatcher’s Britain. As he finds out more about the complexities of Israel and Palestine, a train of violent and fateful events are unleashed that take him to the edge of sanity. Whether it’s selling kilos of hashish under the noses of the Egyptian Police or Patrick attempting to ejaculate for the first time, The Dustbowls of Maturity describes a breathtaking ride from Jerusalem to Cairo to Mount Sinai that ends in a shattering finale on the coast of the Red Sea.

    "No Dustbowl..." I work in the same industry as the author and having met him many times now I was intrigued when he informed me he was publishing a book. Having now read it I was not disappointed and devoured it in a matter of days. It's a rollicking ride of honest yet often misguided adventure with believable, yet all too flawed, characters. I read a good chunk of it in one sitting, and was running back to snatch more in-between work trips as it's not the sort of book you pack and go with. It's a fine addition to the travel fiction genre and, like The Beach, I'm not too sure if I like the protagonist, but once I started I was hooked. For a first novel, if that is the case, it's a fantastic effort which should be commended. I would recommend it to anyone and not just the worthy few who are prepared to get off the beaten track in support of the underdog, but those after a genuinely entertaining page turner. Dan Keegan
