WHEELS ABROAD

Paul Taylor

Oh no! Not another travel book starring the author - well, yes, but a laidback account of mainly European trips with his wheelchair-bound father...


Paris and Lourdes, Madrid and Barcelona, Dublin and Wales, Scotland and Scarborough, Italy and Amsterdam - fun and games of a middle-aged man and his father, struggling with a wheelchair through numerous art galleries, cafes, bars, museums, and more bars. The father - a World War Two veteran, re-converted Catholic, whisky-addicted, dyed-in-the-wool Socialist, a self-educated culture lover, and all with a terminal illness. The son - ex-Cambridge, atheistic, pretentious and pedantic, heavy smoker and drinker, and barely able to push the wheelchair. What larks indeed! An illuminating journey of discovery of a father-son relationship (perhaps, of any father-son relationship) leavened by eight examples of pedagogy, three jokes, two footnotes, twenty-one art galleries, one accident, eight countries, four cathedrals, one flat tyre, and a large number of liver-wrecking libations.
