They say life imitates art. And for author Nic Papalia that saying rings true ? even though his real-life adventures often make those of the fiction world pale in comparison. The two stories in this book are very different. Yet they are both true ? and very inspir- ational. The Boomerang Trail As an introverted 19-year-old farm worker, Papalia was once told that he needed to broaden his mind and ?have a look at the world.' So, he did just that. In South Africa, he ended up in the middle of a civil war in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). He was mistaken for a spy in Zambia and arrested. He was stricken with cholera in India. In Mexico, he was shot at in a bar. And in San Francisco, he experienced life as a penniless street vagrant. And in Central America, he risked his life to shoot a short documentary. But that didn't stop him from climbing to the top of the world ? Mt. Kilimanjaro. Now in his early forties, Paplia chronicles his ten years as a globe-hopper in this compelling story. Who Cares? Now livingin Perth, Western Australia, Papalia works as a carer for clients with disabilities. Who Cares? shows the different struggles encountered by both carers and clients in this honest, compassionate and often funny story.Papalia, Nic is the author of 'Boomerang Trail and Who Cares' with ISBN 9781589391703 and ISBN 1589391705.
