Zen and the Diary of a B&B Owner

Author(s): Scott Barfield

Location(s): Brighton

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): Modern



Zen and the Diary of a B&B Owner is the humorous memoir of an ex-academic who traded professional security for a new start as a B&B owner in central Brighton.
The book, in recounting the true stories of sharing your house with thousands of strangers a year, offers essential reading to anyone contemplating a similar change of lifestyle. In also using people’s behaviour and conversations as a way of philosophising and commenting about life, the book will furthermore appeal generally to anyone interested in the foibles of human existence.
Many have speculated about leaving their jobs to start a new life, Zen and the Diary of a B&B Owner provides an entertaining account of the reality, along with additional musings set against the backdrop of (self-proclaimed) bohemian Brighton.
