Perking the Pansies2First reviews are in for Perking the Pansies: Jack and Liam move to Turkey. They are good, very good. To say I’m pleased is somewhat of an understatement. As a man who has never written a book before (or for that matter, even contemplated writing a book) I am in shock. It all goes to show how making a significant change to your life can lead to extraordinary and unexpected things.

Here’s a selection of the blush-inducing reviews.

“I can’t heap any more praise on Perking the Pansies – the book, without gushing.” – Roving Jay, blogger

Perking the Pansies is not so much about Jack’s Adventures Through The Looking Glass, but more about Who He Found There – a refreshing change from the many memoirs whose authors are constantly center-stage.” – Kate Allison, The Displaced Nation

“Scott pulls no punches. A good read from the new boy on the block.” – Jane Akatay, journalist

“… hilarious, saucy, witty, heartwarming and incredibly moving.” – Linda A Janssen, Writer, co-author of Turning PointsAdventuresinexpatland.com

“Loved it! Jack Scott has penned a memoir of which to be proud. Exquisitely written, utterly candid, beautifully descriptive and observant.” – Deborah Fletcher, author, Bitten by Spain 

I just read the book cover to proverbial cover as I could not put it down. I laughed and cried and adored the verve and jauntiness with which you wrote about the experiences.” – Liz Cameron, Slowly By Slowly

Who’d have thought it?
