Danny owes three grand to a local gangster. He has exactly seventeen pounds, twenty-two pence in his building society account. This, he realises, is a problem. When he is offered a simple three-way choice: Pay up, lose his testicles, or steal a baby giraffe from the zoo, Danny plumps for option c. He has five days to deliver. With the help of his best friend, Raymond, an obsessive-compulsive with an IQ of 160, Danny puts together an extraordinary plan. One that might just keep his balls out of a metalwork vice, and his life savings behind the vault doors. Meanwhile, on the rich side of town, virginal Huey and his friends are preparing for prom night. His cougar mother has paid for the limo. Controversial rapper, MC Byatch Forker, is to be the star attraction. For Huey though, the last day of school is all about Susanna Harriot, the girl responsible for his huge tissue bill. Can he make her see how amazing he really is, or will the three blonde witches from the tennis club ruin everything once again? Helped and hindered in equal measure by; Marco, a tourettes afflicted pizza delivery boy; Elmore, a gangster thug in a yellow leather jacket; Constance, a gentle zoo security officer, and; SO19, the specialist armed police unit. Then there is a baby giraffe called Flo. Along with a large cast of miscreants, misanthropes, MILFs, murderers, and mal-adjusted sisters who play viola, Danny and Raymond plot their giraffe kidnap, a plan as daring as the 'Dambusters' raid itself, hoping against all odds that they can save Danny's balls from unwanted compression. Prom night is going to be epic. WARNING - This is NOT a children's book. Contains strong language and politically incorrect humour.

The first comprehensive presentation of the core teachings of the Kalahari Bushmen as told by the Tribal Elders • Reveals how the Bushmen are able to receive direct transmissions of God’s love for healing and spiritual transformation • Explores tribal legends and teaching tales, the importance of dreams and animals, and the origins of their dances, rituals, and ceremonies Step into the imaginative realm of one of the oldest continuous cultures on Earth, the Kalahari Ju/’hoansi Bushmen. Translated by Beesa Boo, a Bushman, and interspersed with detailed commentary from Bradford and Hillary Keeney, this book presents the core teachings of the Kalahari Bushmen as told by the tribal elders themselves. Decades in the making, it constitutes the first comprehensive work on the world’s oldest tradition of healing and spiritual experience. Told in their own words, these teachings reveal how the Bushmen are able to receive direct transmissions of God’s love in the form of the universal life force, n/om. The individuals who are filled with this force describe it as an awakened, energized feeling of love that inspires a spontaneous and heightened ecstatic awareness that opens mystical perception. Having your heart transfixed by this force enables true healing and spiritual growth to occur. Experiencing the force in your entire being, through a vision of “God’s egg”, awakens deep spiritual wisdom and extraordinary healing gifts. Those who “own the egg” are blessed with the ability to have direct communication with the Divine, a “rope to God,” and can communicate with others for all “ropes” are connected. Conveying the deep love that is the dominant emotion of Bushman spirituality, the book explores tribal legends and teaching tales, the importance of dreams and encounters with animals, the origins of their dances, such as the giraffe dance, and specific rituals and ceremonies, including puberty rites for boys and girls. “As the elder teachers of the Ju’/hoan Bushman (San) people, we hold the most enduring traditional wisdom concerning healing and spiritual experience. This book is a testimony of our ecstatic ways. We happily share our basic teachings about spirituality and healing with those whose hearts are sincerely open.”
