Available Now!

Michael Graham was entering his seventh decade of life, and he was restless. After a career spent traveling the globe, he needed a new adventure to affirm his continued vitality. But what could possibly pose a challenge to a man who’d seen and done it all?

Graham found his challenge in Sào Paulo, Brazil, where he opened an Asian restaurant. While he had been to Sào Paulo before, he knew little of the city and its people. And there was an even bigger obstacle: Graham spoke not one word of Portuguese.

After moving, he found himself in a bureaucratic tangle as he dealt with unreliable banks and strange customs. He wondered if this project was just a way to combat his fear of aging or just impulsiveness. Yet even as his dream became a nightmare, it held the promise of the fulfillment he’d been longing for.


“Graham cooks up an unlikely, laugh-out-loud funny, fish-out-of-water story in a Bill Bryson and Peter Mayle tradition. The writing is always laconic and self-deprecating and some of his escapages beggar belief. Lurking underneath is something more poignant: an everyman story about our eternal search for meaning, fulfilment – oh, yes, and love.”   ~ Gary Jenkins, Author of 30 books including international, #1 best-selling book and movie called a Street Cat Named Bob.

“His tone is casual and self-deprecating and he offers hard won, useful advice to would be entrepreneurs.”  ~ Kirkus Reviews
