On the way, Frank was fortunate to enjoy a good night’s sleep in a brothel; learn about the dangers of asking for breakfast on his first day at the Isle of Man TT races; discover the delights of skiing on a motorcycle and appreciate the benefits of not listening to paramedics discussing his imminent death.
Every page is filled with warmth, humour and unique stories which are a wonderful window on growing up in England the 1960s and 1970s.
The voyage Frank takes you on during “A Penguin in a Sparrow’s Nest” is unique but one always driven by passion, determination and boundless optimism.
