Thirty-something Londoner Nick Leonard spent two months living in a caravan in a friend's back yard in the city of San Luis Obispo on California's Central Coast. His goal was to write a novel but he came back empty-handed, having been irresistibly sidetracked by the temptations of the Californian lifestyle. Expecting a world of Beach Boys lyrics and 90210 brats, Nick was completely unprepared for what he found – a California that belongs to Zombie flash mobs and Poly Dollies, to marauding bears and a train spotting dragon, to drag-wearing Mayhem and Bendy Bike John, to Mona Sleeza and Miss Anita Slapahoe - enough to addle the most ardent of authors. Roller Skaters and Wine Makers provides a sharply observed and humorous account of these distractions from a wholly Brit perspective. Roller Skaters and Wine Makers is sold in aid of the Cardiomyopathy Association

    Loved the book, particularly as someone who's been to SLO and felt the pace of life there. These are well written, very funny accounts of some typically American pasttimes that we Brits often struggle to understand. Even if you've never been to the US you'll appreciate many of the observations here - like the Californians' preoccupation with detoxing and the constant dilemma over how much to tip. Made me laugh out loud, thoroughly recommended.
