John Parker Debuts ESCAPE ROUTE

John Parker Debuts ESCAPE ROUTE

"I am a coyote... a wolf... who has learned the escape route you must have to survive in order to get through life and enjoy it!"

These are the words of debut author John Parker, who, in his hysterical new book Escape Route draws from his remarkable background as a world traveler, adapting his riotous antics while trekking the globe into a book that will help any traveler enjoy their journeys.

With Escape Route, Parker opens up about his travels, the many tight spots he got himself into over the years and how he managed to escape scot-free - a phrase that, as a Scot, he knows well. Pulling no punches, he writes with a sense of humor shaped by the '70s, when people were less concerned with political correctness.

Parker's humor flavors his story with a characteristically Scottish - and, for those who might be easily offended, very adult - perspective. "This book will appeal to people because it is funny," he says. "I have nailed the West of Scotland humor in it... which is a humor that is very unique."
