Product Description

Turning the standard text and design of familiar travel guides on its ear is the mandate of the Jetlag Travel Guide to Molvan a, the small Eastern European nation keen to position itself as a tourist attraction, despite the fact that it doesn't exist.

Welcome to Molvan a, the "land-locked republic famous as the birthplace of the polka and whooping cough, and producer of 83% of the world's beetroot." Cultural details, useful phrases, accommodation and restaurant listings, color photos, and maps are found alongside information about the people, the country, and major exports (which include spittoons and low-grade heroin).

Brilliantly original and very, very funny. If you buy just one book on Molvania this year make it this book. Bill Bryson

A genuinely funny and utterly surreal book: imagine a Monthy Python guide to Eastern Europe and you re almost there. Ben Schott, author of Schott's Original Miscellany
