Last Bed on Earth

Author(s): Teri Louise Kelly

Biography / Memoir

Even the free whisky had gone, and the mini-bar gins. What else were a couple of girls down on their luck supposed to do? Teri Louise Kelly and her partner in crime, Jo Buck, arrive penniless in New Zealand from the UK on the hunt for a 'better way of life'. Instead they find a situation vacant ad, and become managers of a 100-bed backpacking hostel, attending the peculiar whims of the budget-travelling army as it descends through the long white clouds bearing rucksacks, innumerable contagious diseases and too little in the way of good sense. Last Bed on Earth tells the story of those six months of mayhem in the adventure capital of the world as viewed from behind a wire-mesh cage - and from the unique perspective of a man who became a woman acting the role of a man. 'A wonderful novel full of dark humour.' - Debbie Phillips, Chronicle
