Paris and Other Disappointments Book by Adam Rozenbachs

Description

A memoir about family, travel and why the Eiffel Tower is a real letdown in person, based on the sold-out Comedy Festival show.

Sick of going overseas and enjoying himself, comedian Adam Rozenbachs decided he should take his father on the trip of a lifetime to Europe. For his dad, it was a chance to return to the place he hasn’t seen fleeing post-war Germany as an immigrant. For Adam, it was a chance to repay his dad for everything he’d given him in life. As it turned out, after three weeks of travel, Adam decided not killing his dad was more than enough repayment. The trip took frustration to a whole new level as Adam discovered his dad doesn’t like museums, galleries, landmarks, travelling, or Paris.

God, he hated Paris.

But amid the irritation of travelling with an adult toddler (an adoddler), Adam learned – through gritted teeth – more about his dad, his family and himself.

If you’ve ever travelled with family, are considering it, or would never even dream of it, you will identify with the pain, pressure and triumph of Adam making it out alive (and with a hint of sanity left). Paris and Other Disappointments is a hilarious memoir about fathers and sons, and the joys and challenges of travel, from one of Australia’s most talented comedians.
