Paul Lambis is the author of three books, two of which have become best-sellers. The Paul Lambis Comedy Shows, a series of sold-out stand-up comedy performances that captivated audiences with his unique sense of humour, were inspired by his highly successful memoir, Where is Home? - A journey of hilarious contrasts.
THE TURKISH PRINCESS
Kate Isa is one of the richest and most powerful women in the world. She is an enigma, a woman surrounded by a thousand unanswered questions. Her father, a descendant of the Ottoman Sultans, was one of the world's leading fashion designers. Her mother was the daughter of a Greek merchant. Her conception was itself an act of hate-filled vengeance.
At the extravagant celebrations of her fortieth birthday, there are toasts from famous models and Hollywood celebrities, and a mysterious letter from an Eastern Orthodox monastery. And for Kate there are ghosts – ghosts of absent friends and of enemies. Ghosts from an empire spawned by naked ambition…
‘The Turkish Princess’ is Lambis’ first novel (published in 1995 and scheduled for re-release in 2021); a compulsively readable thriller, packed with controversy, suspense, intrigue, betrayal and passion.
WHERE IS HOME?
Paul Charalambous is nearing his forties. Bored, unhappy and on his way to financial disaster, he decides to re-evaluate his beliefs as he sets off on a journey of self-discovery.
Re-inventing himself as the prodigious Mr. X, he begins to search for a new home and a new life while using his personal experiences as a stepping stone.
‘Where is Home?’ is an entertaining autobiography of an overweight boy growing up Greek in South Africa.
While attempting to overcome all of life's challenges, he encounters a new world of entertainment, spirituality and the opposite sex. Applying only what works for him to his personal life, he tries to find the true meaning of family, and a home in London (or Cyprus) which includes all of them in it. But, will his travels lead him to the solutions he is desperately searching for?
ODD ONE OUT
'Odd One Out' is a humorous journey of one man’s attempt to find a new way of living that would carry him into thin and beyond. An unashamed memoir of binges, setbacks, explosive outbursts and ultimate success, this fast-moving book also delves into different aspects of life as seen through separate stories involving a wide variety of individuals, many of whom are shown to be interlinked as their tales progress.
Paul Lambis’ self-deprecating narrative is extremely sarcastic and utterly hilarious, and along with his epic lines of wisdom and snappy dialogue – creating high adventure and wild drama around the porous boundaries between fiction and real life, it makes for a laugh-out-loud book.
