John Chandler relates his compelling story in a delightful, easy to read style that inspires wistful smiles and uproarious laughter.
With the effortless humour of the naturally gifted raconteur that he is, John Chandler relates his compelling story in a delightful, easy to read style that inspires wistful smiles and uproarious laughter. From childhood days on a plantation to iconic status in heritage tourism as the man whose name became synonymous with both the legendary Ocean View Hotel and the world acclaimed Fisherpond Great House.
John’s adventures in life are liberally laced with boyish pranks, hilarious situations, brushes with notoriety and luscious liaisons. Having hosted royalty and stars alike in Barbados over the years, he has also merrily socialised with many of them on the celebrity hideaway-island of Mustique. What a story! Fortunately, John Chandler has survived to tell the tale. And here it is – complete with over 100 fascinating photographs!
