Announcing Nowhere Slow, Our Newest Ebook


We published another ebook!

Nowhere Slow: Eleven Years on a Micronesian Island is a memoir of cultural confusion, hilarity and tragedy, and a decade of soul-searching, from our own Jonathan Gourlay. And it’s only $2.99!

In 1997, Jonathan travels to the island of Pohnpei, in the western Pacific Ocean, to teach English at the College of Micronesia. He is a stranger in a strange land, unfamiliar with the language, the intricacies of Pohnpeian social life, and most of all, the mildly psychotropic drink sakau. But the society that he blunders into eventually becomes his adopted home for the next eleven years. Along the way, Gourlay endures plenty of minor embarrassments and one major heartbreak: his whirlwind marriage to a Pohnpeian woman comes apart and ends in tragedy, leaving him to pick up the pieces of his life and to raise his daughter alone.

The Nowhere Slow series was originally published on The Bygone Bureau in 2010 and has been re-edited and collected with new material in this handsome ebook.

And if you haven’t already, you can now pick up our first ebook, The Biggest Yam, at a newly discounted price of $0.99.

Available for Kindle — $2.99
