Product description

Review

'A delightful read - sharp and humorous' -- Jonathan Dimbleby

'This witty, honest account just goes to prove it's never too late to jump off that nine-to-five treadmill' -- Daily Mail

A richly funny book, Philip Ells draws wonderful pen pictures of what must have been the experience of a lifetime. -- City to City magazine, June/July 06

Synopsis

How does a young City lawyer end up as the People's Lawyer of the fourth-smallest country in the world, 12,000 kilometres from home? We've all thought about getting off the treadmill, turning life on its head and doing something worthwhile. Philip Ells dreamed of turquoise seas, sandy beaches and palm trees, and he found these in the tiny Pacific island state of Tuvalu. But neither his Voluntary Service Overseas briefing pack nor his legal training could prepare him for what happened there. He learned to deal with rapes, murders, incest, the unforgivable crime of pig theft and to look a shark in the eye. But he never dared ask the octogenarian Tuvaluan chief why he sat immobilised by a massive rock permanently resting on his groin. Well, you wouldn't, would you? This is the story of a UK lawyer colliding with a Pacific island culture. The fallout is moving, dramatic, bewildering and often hilarious.
