Description - If: a Memoir - An alcoholic gambles his sobriety on a 16,000-kilometre motorcycle ride to find himself. by Richard West

A man hell-bent on challenging his own sobriety


Recovering alcoholic Richard West has never exorcised the ghosts of his worst tragedy. It destroyed his life and left him broken. With guilt eating him alive, he buys a motorcycle and escapes on an impulsive journey into the Australian Outback.As the former corporate cop attempts to circumnavigate one of the harshest continents in the world in just a few months, he sees haunting visions that both torture and guide him. But when he meets a woman in a yellow drop-top Bug, she threatens his sobriety. With each temptation, the bottle of Johnnie Walker in his saddlebag whispers his name.


Eventually, he has to make a choice. One that will change everything.


If is an extraordinary memoir about riding to redemption. If you like flawed heroes, road novels, or have ever battled to overcome your own demons, then Richard West's memoir will touch your heart.


Get If today and join this gut-wrenching fight to survive!
