The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in An IKEA WardrobePaperback - 2014
For readers of "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared" comes a funny, charming, feel-good story about a fake fakir from India who arrives in France to shop at IKEA, and unwittingly embarks on a European tour like no other. This is a story full of raw humour, great characters, and wonderful wordplay, telling a simple story of a man in search of a better life, no matter what the risks. The author works with the French border police to document fraud, so he has seen first-hand immigrants escaping from countries where hope is in short order.
