JETLAG TRAVEL GUIDE TO MOLVANÎA:
A Land Untouched By Modern Dentistry

Authors: Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner, Rob Sitch

This is one very funny book.  Don't read it with food in your mouth.  It will have you laughing out loud.

Part travel guide, part the Onion and a smattering of Russian comic Yakov Smirnoff, this is a travel guide to a fictional Eastern European republic.

Welcome to Molvanîa, 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).

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

The authors are Australian filmmakers; their stated purpose is to take people where they don't want to go.

$13.95 (softcover)
