“Compact enough to be devoured in a sitting. Complex enough to trigger memories of resilience and triumph … while laughing all the way.”

Tales of woe and hilarity is a quirky look at some characters and adventures in a life of ups and downs, told in colourful cameos.

Over the past couple of years people have had enough of difficulties and stress. Author Ann Bythell’s book is an opportunity to sit back, be entertained and laugh.
