Drink, Play, F@#k

drinkplayHere’s a new book that’s got my attention — Drink, Play, F@#k: One Man’s Search for Anything Across Ireland, Las Vegas, and Thailand. Not that I have a particular interest in stories of people finding themselves (or getting lost in foreign places for that matter), but my absolute lack of interest in the book that inspired this one — Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, has piqued my curiosity in this semi-parodic, male take on things.

Many of my friends enjoyed Gilbert’s story of exploration and discovery, but I couldn’t make it past a third of the book. Andrew Gottlieb’s story on the other hand, is about a jilted husband who sets out to explore the world and fulfil fantasies that include beer, soccer and Asian prostitutes. It’s a fictional journey told by a comedic writer, but it might be just as revealing and insightful as Eat, Pray, Love was to many. I’ll give it at least a few chapters.

    • LOL! Thought you’d appreciate the post! This book also reminded me of another I read years ago called Swahili for the Broken-Hearted. You might like that if you haven’t read it. cp.
