About this product
- DescriptionIn 2002 while in Japan, Andy McBean set out on a remarkable adventure. His mission: to record every single visit to the toilet made over a year. Every visit. Not just the bizarre ones involving attacks with fire extinguishers or suffering from hypothermia. Every single visit. It was a grand vision encompassing t just the minutiae of bowel movements but the broad social sweep of environment, society - the people and the places, the act of getting to and getting from - as he puts it so eloquently in his foreword 'the whole flipping rigmarole of toileting'...The Japanese Experiment ended in disaster, crashing and burning on a cold night in Tokyo. But Andy was undeterred and when he had recovered sufficiently he took up the challenge again. This is a record of a year in the life of one man. Some say a brave man, some say foolhardy. Others call him a halfwit. And through this record you can share with him his pain, his pleasure; the tears of laughter, the cries of despair - a moving experience like other.
- Author BiographyAndy McBean - with one failed attempt behind him (Japan, 2002) this time he was determined to succeed. Such grit and courage in the face of adversity - qualities usually reserved for great global adventurers - have marked Andy out from the common herd. That and the purely bonkers quality of this particular project. Andy McBean - a very special person indeed.
