A journey

Joel Magarey

Exposure is a funny and poignant memoir of adventure and love with a sharp psychological edge. Joel Magarey, a young journalist haunted by both inflated dreams and obsessive-compulsive disorder, abandons his career and girlfriend of seven years for a long-imagined global odyssey - and unimagined perils. Travel tale, love story and generation-X tragicomedy, Exposure is about wanting and fearing too much, choosing too little and how a person can spend three weeks solid in Los Angeles searching for the perfect sleeping bag.

Praise for Exposure:
'A striking and substantial book, at once compelling, scary, delightfully comic and moving.' - Tom Shapcott

'The misadventures of the young Joel, erotic and otherwise, during an odyssey to some of the remoter corners of the world, are related with wry honesty.' - J.M. Coetzee

'An extraordinary story ... wry, honest, amusing and evocative.' - Eva Hornung
