Don’t Go There
Adam Fletcher
(UK: Independently published, @adamfletcher, 2018; USA: Independently published, @adamfletcher, 2018)

How much would you risk to change your life? … After Spiegel bestselling-author Adam Fletcher is tear-gassed in street protests in Istanbul, he goes on a journey to some of the strangest places in the world with his eccentric German girlfriend, Annett … He freezes in a blizzard in China … Ruins a mass dance in North Korea … Experiences corruption in Soviet-breakaway Transnistria …  Ponders the apocalypse in Chernobyl … Gets stopped by the police on the way to libertarian utopia Liberland …  And meets the devil incarnate on a night bus in Moldova.

But his quest to better understand himself (and everyone else) will threaten his world view, sanity, and relationship. Is the price worth paying? Don’t Go There is a hilarious travel memoir full of interesting characters, uncomfortable moments, unusual destinations, and British humour.
