Unburdened by the Problems of Success: A Humorous Account on How to Achieve Absolutely Nothing
Ronald Dalgliesh, author
Unburdened by the Problems of Success is the first in a trilogy of humorous musings from RJ Dalgliesh. His collection of loosely connected short stories recounts an often hysterical view into Scottish life as seen through the eyes of a young Mr. Dalgliesh. His story begins in a cottage on the outskirts of Edinburgh, where as a young lad his penchant for spinning a tall yarn leads to an unfortunate horse riding accident for a young woman. From that inauspicious, yet hilarious, beginning, the reader is taken on a series of misadventures recounted from his youth. These involve a rabid dog, a bad haircut, an ill-fated camping trip, a coach ride to London to see the Scottish national team play England, and a series of - often - failed encounters with the fairer sex, that ultimately leads to meeting his future wife.
