Fluffing the Concrete
In the 1970's, when most young people were dreaming of backpacking around Europe, Mack Dryden was one of the few that actually did it. The problem though, was that he made a wrong turn in Marrakech, and ended up in a North African prison. This is the story of how it happened, why it happened, and what he did to survive it. You'd think that with a subject this serious, you'd have a very sobering read, but the author is a well renowned comedian, and that humor has created a very funny and inspiring book. If you enjoy a glass half full view of life, put this one on your list.
