About the Author

Simon Parke started writing for radio programmes like Week Ending, then for TV, contributing to the early days of Spitting Image and Three of a Kind. He has also written for Simon Mayo's Radio One Breakfast Show, been the 'house vicar' for Heart and Soul on BBC1, and paused for thought with Terry Wogan on Radio 2. But, he spends most of his time as a Church of England vicar in London.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book can be read on its own as a thought-provoking, amusing and very gripping tale or as part of Simon Parke's 'Desert trilogy' which includes 'Desert Depths (Three Come to the Desert)' and 'Desert Ascent (A Brief History of Eternity)'. This latter has been written in more depth and republished under the title: 'Another Bloody Retreat'. There are further comments on the 'Desert Depths' and 'Desert Ascent' pages.

All hugely enjoyable and highly recommended.
