|Take Me to Paradise|
The Art of Learning by Doing
By Jan Cornall
Marilyn wakes up one morning and instead of catching the bus to work, catches the "I don’t like Mondays’‚ flight to Bali. But is she too late to indulge her paradise dream?
Has post-bomb, post-Schapelle, Bali, become a cliché just like Marilyn? How many western women have arrived before her and fallen headlong, for the lush green island, its exotic culture and their attractive driver?
Set in the artisan hill town of Ubud, Bali, between bomb one and bomb two, Jan Cornall’s witty and insightful performance prose novel, explores notions of paradise and a modern woman’s quest for meaning and passion in a post 9/11 world.
Marilyn finds her paradise. But is she prepared for the demands paradise will make of her?
Comments on Jan's novel:
“Performance writer Jan Cornall’s fine observations and humorous monologues read like a theatre piece, film script and novel rolled into one. The atmosphere she creates is so vibrant you almost expect her characters to burst into song.” - Alison Nancye, Mermaid Books.
“Jan Cornall describes the dilemma of the modern western woman; free, independent and alone before her time. It’s not surprising that her character Marilyn, finds herself in Bali’s spiritual and sensual haven, searching for something more. A delightful read.”
"Jan Cornall can always be found leading the charge into the minefield of comedy about contemporary sexual and social mores."
