If you enjoy 'Ticking Along with the Swiss' and want to keep 'Ticking Along Too', then move on to 'Ticking Along Free'. Join 38 authors who are coming and going, climbing cliffs, finding jobs and a plot, exploring the myth of lousy lovers, plunging in and out of trouble and on the wrong trains, making new friends on benches, or in places for women only. Discover a dog that drives a car and a car that saves Christmas, feel how cultures sometimes clash when you're stuck between two worlds. The authors come from Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, England, Ethiopia, Ghana, the Philippines and the USA. Some simply can't remember. Some have always been and will always be Swiss. All are at home, yet foreign, and making the best of it. This collection also includes stories by some prominent Swiss authors: Franz Hohler, Hugo Loetscher, -minu, Gisela Widmer, Emil Zopfi.show more
