About the Book
Whittaker Jones and Uncle Paddy Truaxe, pillars of society, married with children, respected middle-aged school teachers, abandon their wives to travel the world and set up house together in a penthouse condo at Waverley Park Towers. Why? Good question. Do they aspire to be monks? Hardly. Gurus? Oracles? Maybe. Are they remorseful? Far from it. It´s either a long, complicated story, or else a very simple one.
Come meet these two strange, adventurous, insightful gentlemen, visit them in their penthouse apartment above the clouds, follow them through their daily lives. Find out who their friends and enemies are, see what makes them tick. Drink a toast, join the celebration, but whatever you do, don't pity them. Share their joy, their misery, their glory days, their inevitable sorrow.
