Mulligan'S Wake (eBook)
de Dave Mulligan
Sobre o livro
Following the untimely death of his beloved father in the ‘80s (comedy writer/producer, Jim Mulligan), 25-year-old Dave Mulligan abruptly dropped every encumbrance in his life (after being arrested for the Killer Whale Incident), bought a plane ticket around the world, and commenced a tour of bedlam on the other side of the planet in Australia. There were many failures along the way and plenty of sex...but never at the same time. It’s really a story of true love.
In a whirlwind of new faces, beer, honest romance, irresponsible relapses and personal gains, Dave meandered somewhat aimlessly around Australia, driving a discarded station wagon -Ol’ Creampuff- with a Scotsman named McInnes in the passenger seat. The two formed a unique bond calling themselves the Knights of Chivalry, saving scores of damsels in distress as they traversed the virgin territories Down Under. Along the way, he’s regularly visited in his dreams by his late father. Dave believes Jim would have been disappointed in his running away to find himself after his death and his ethereal manifestation doesn’t hold back when letting him know. But there’s an underlying amusement in his view as Dave was living an adventure the senior Mulligan had only been able to imagine in his neat and industrious 55 years.
Dave also makes the acquaintance of the “little voice” in his head and has conversations with him at various moments and forks in the road. He’s an irresponsible little fucker, but he’s pretty funny and enjoys tempting Dave into troublesome situations... often times with girls.
