Avant Guard: The Unauthorized and Probably Inaccurate Biography of Walter Wobblebottom
by David R.J. Warrior, illustrated by Hassan Warrior
There are only three ways to live an average life; be in a permanent state of denial, relentlessly pursue an imaginary life with tunnel vision or rise up above it all and look down on the world with pity, compassion and most important of all a truly British sense of humor.
Walter Wobblebottom was not a special person and as for so many people, recalling his life is like looking through a thousand shards of crystal, full of frantic distortions and exaggerations. Over time we pull away from the worldly illusions that surround us and we are able to see that those shards of crystal are actually the facets of a complete beautifully cut diamond that is our life. We keep the best.About the Author
