Summary

Miles Morland is an adventurer. He was born in India to a naval father and a dangerously glamorous mother. When his parents divorced, Miles followed his mother to Tehran, which they had to leave in a hurry, and on to Baghdad, which they also had to leave in a hurry after the 1958 revolution. His early years were filled with desert journeys, riots, perilous near-misses, and adventures worthy of Kipling, after which he was sent to England for a "proper" education.

Later, following years of shouting down a Wall Street telephone, Miles quit his job, bought a giant motorcycle and set off to discover things in places others did not want to go. Deported at gunpoint from Romania, saved from assassination in Ethiopia by a lucky plane crash, riding an Enfield Bullet through Ooty and following Che over the Andes--Miles has a knack of finding trouble.

Brilliantly observed and told with unique humor, Cobra in the Bath will have you crying with laughter and scared out of your wits.

Author Biography

Miles Morland was born in India and grew up all over the place--but chiefly in Iran, Iraq, and Jersey. He has two children and was divorced twice by their mother, now a Jungian analyst. Today, he divides his time between increasingly idiotic adventures, a houseboat on the Thames, and a house on the marshes of North Norfolk. His first book, The Man Who Broke Out of the Bank, about chucking his job and walking across France with his recently remarried wife was a Sunday Times bestseller.
