An exciting travel adventure, as the author explores darkest Scotland, equatorial Africa, remote Tibet, rainsoaked Tofino, and inner Struthers. Victoria film maker and writer Andrew Struthers borrows the language and visual layout of the Victorian travelogue to tell his own tale in Around the World on Minimum Wage.

Come along with our intrepid adventurer, as he explores a subterranean bookshop in Glasgow, the scorched hills of Africa, sketches the Tibetan uprising, teaches English in Japan, flips burgers and produces plays in Tofino, all the while trying to reconcile seemingly irreconcileable contradictions.
Andrew Struthers is the author of The Last Voyage of the Loch Ryan (2004) and The Green Shadow (1995), which won a National Magazine Award in its original serialized form. He is at least as well known as his films, including the Hinterland Tales series for MTV, Tiger Bomb: A Symphony in Dynamite, and the wildly popular Spiders on Drugs...
