Description of book: Surreal road trip across Cyprus, ironically observing the consequences of the cypriot political deadlock on the topography and the geography of this beautiful mediterranean island, split into two separate geographical areas since 1974 (the turkish in the north and the greek in the south). The book is designed to highlight the idea of division, confusion and nonsense. Just like the cypriot political situation, the journey described in our self publish is potentially open to many different possibilities and solutions but paradoxically ending up running round in circles and leading nowhere. Like a Roundabout.
The best thing about self-publishing: It’s 100% yourself You know what you mean
