On the run, ex-fighter pilot Bart Bandy finds his life starting to unravel.

Flying to Britain in his self-designed amphibious aircraft, Bart makes a forced landing in Reykjavik, is rescued by a beautiful but bossy blonde who takes a shine to him, and finally sinks his precious plane in the drink while saving the life of a novice pilot who has come down in the North Sea.

The boy turns out to be the son of a fabulously rich Indian maharajah, whose shopping list features a complete airforce full of pilots and planes. As Bart can barely scrape together fourpence ha’penny for a pint of beer these days, it looks like his luck has turned . . .

With the blackest of black comedy and seat-of-the pants escapades, Donald Jack’s series about a young pilot is uniquely funny and compelling.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for The Bandy Papers Series 'I enjoyed every word . . . terrifically funny' P.G. Wodehouse

'The Bandy Papers deserve to be read in private where insane giggling can go unnoticed' Jack Granatstein

'Jack does more than play it for laughs . . . The mingling of humor and horror is like a clown tap-dancing on a coffin, but Jack is skillful enough to get away with it' Time Magazine

'Funny. Very. Donald Jack has as light a touch with this fragile art as his hero has on throttle of a Sopwith Camel. Excessive corn is avoided in favour of wit and a delight in life' New York Times

'Bartholomew Bandy is the most remarkable hero (or anti-hero) since Harold Lloyd impersonated the Freshman' Chicago Tribune

'To know Bandy is to love him . . . you tend to gallop through and come hurtling out at the end panting for more' The Sunday Sun

'For those to whom Bandy is a newcomer, what a treat is in store' Toronto Star
