A Suitcase Full of Koalas is a modern, edgy travel book set to test your wits and memory for detail. Gallivanting around London and somewhere distinctly south of the great capital in a sleepy seaside village, the author finds herself handing out tiny furry koalas to the English, to the Polish, to the Italians, in fact to anyone who cares to accept the little fellas as a gift from Australia. In her moochings over a month, she manages to meet a myriad of characters from all walks of life who practically jump off the pavements, à la Mary Poppins and Bert, and into the book.

This is a book about life and living – about the human condition and quest for feathering one’s own nest. As John Donne observed, ‘No man is an island’, but sometimes we yearn to embrace solitude and sit with ourselves and a good book. A Suitcase Full of Koalas will inevitably tickle your fancy and have you laughing on every other page. But that’s a good thing, isn’t it?

Fil Bufalo has been writing for a lifetime—on the sand, on slate and in shorthand. An animated storyteller and accomplished raconteur, she has gathered all her thoughts, philosophies and musings on life into a bonfire of words and taken the plunge with a match.

    Carry on with the Koalas!!! Reading 'A Suitcase Full of Koalas' was an absolute pleasure. It felt good to laugh. Over the last week I've spent many a spare moment picking up the book and carrying on with my reading, sometimes at the expense of missing out on gardening, watching 'Gardeners World' or a walk around the block. I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations between the characters and I even recognised some traits shared by family and friends in different characters. The cultural, philosophical and historical observations were very enlightening. Reading 'A Suitcase Full of Koalas' made me want to go back to London!
