The #1 Humor Bestseller, with a foreword by Robbie Williams.
Welcome to La-La Land. Your guide: Irish dreamer, schemer, drinker, thinker, bon viveur, enfant terrible, raconteur and fan of foreign words in italics, Mark Hayes. Strap yourself in for a wild and hilarious ride around America's craziest city with Ireland's craziest writer.
Bored and tired of his successful career back home, Mark Hayes knows there has to be something worth living for. Something more than running a translation business and buying new T-shirts on the internet. Even though they're very nice T-shirts.
His dream: to be a famous actor-slash-writer. His own star on Hollywood Boulevard (between Lionel Ritchie and Dolly Parton would be acceptable). A Beverly Hills mansion with a model in every bedroom. Enough booze to float his luxury yacht on.
Determined to make it happen, Mark leaves behind Ireland's green and pleasant land and moves to LA to chase his dream, to have it all - parties and glamour and girls and fame and the bright, shining lights of Hollywood, the whole world at his feet...
Waking up the first morning on the back seat of a car in a Denny's parking lot, with no idea about how he's actually supposed to make it, Mark realises it might not be quite as easy as he'd first thought.
RanDumb is the hilarious tale of what happens when one charismatic but clueless Irish dreamer refuses to accept his fate and goes on an adventure that would make Indiana Jones feel the need for a bit of a lie down.
With breathtaking swagger Mark Hayes lifts the lid on the real Los Angeles and lives the life... so you don't have to. But be warned: this book might inspire you to change your life too.
