Friends, Accountants and Countrymen, Lend Me Your Ears

Friends, Accountants and countrymen, lend me your ears.
For I have come at this season to bury tax returns not to praise them!

The good that men do is oft interred in my books. Go forth and cast your eyes upon my revamped website at

Forget Ukraine, overlook Pakistan, ignore inflation gnawing at your bones.
Think instead of your lonely accountant making ends meet, seeking fame and fortune on the battlefield of social media.
Your every contribution will be gratefully lauded, no matter how large.

Love, peace and prosperity to us all.

Written by Emil Rem

An eccentric accountant becomes a writer of eccentric characters, in exotic locales, with each chapter taking us on a trip into the fascinating twisted world of Emil Rem. Born to a close knit middle class Muslim East Indian family in Dar-es-Salam in the 50’s, he is then moved to Maidenhead England at the age of five. The next twenty years are spent shuttling between England and East Africa, wearing a St. Christopher’s cross one minute and attending church, to wearing a green arm band and attending Muslim religious classes in Africa next minute. Moving to Canada, marrying a woman from the Philippines and having two boys only adds further texture to his stories.
