When the dot com bubble burst in the fall of 2001, the newly laid-off author spent three months on Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos Islands of the British West Indies. This collection comprises the weekly email updates with which he entertained and stymied his audience back home. It follows his misadventures with backwardness and corruption in a colony no longer wanted by its rulers, dealing with the events of September 11 in a foreign country, and the imminent nervous breakdown which threatened his sanity and forced him back into "civilization."

"Food Plane Soup - Entertaining and amusing." Because I know the author, (and was alerted via email to it's rightful place here on earth) I was one of the first people to purchase and read "Food Plane Soup." I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would have even if I had never met Mr. Nickell. His brief sabbatical on the island is a dream many of us have, but very few can make happen. Oh, sure, we'd all love to drop our jobs, family, responsibilities, and everything else that makes us want to run away, but that just isn't an option for most of us. With this book, I can almost taste the fruity beverages and feel the sand in between my toes. His wit is a bit different at times, but Mr. Nickell has always marched to the beat of a different drummer. (or in this case didgeridoo.) So here's to you Ron, the one of us that got to live a little bit of that dream. (and live to tell about it.) TN
