…but I got a bit tied up with all the redesign stuff and time passed before I knew it.
My Boyfriend is a Twat – the book, available in all good bookshops (plus you can get things like this off the internet now). Zoe lives in Belgium, which is the Norfolk of Europe, and has been blogging since the Reformation. I’d regard her as a friend although to be honest we’ve never met, spoken on the telephone or even emailed each other, and only occasionally leave comments in each others’ boxes. Behold: my social skills in a nutshell. I’m hoping that this will be a Christmas hit amongst the sisterhood – do buy a copy for your girlie friends.
If You’re Happy and You Know It – by Andre Jordan (A Beautiful Revolution). Which is out this week!!! Andre was from the same blog intake as I, and pissed me off hugely by being both a) better and b) more attractive to women. Fortunately for my ego, he decided to concentrate on cartoons, annoyingly being good at that as well. Andre’s stuff is genuinely fantastic, so if you buy one book of depressed cartoons this year, make it this one.
While I’m here, a belated mention for Rachel North’s book ‘Out of the Tunnel’. Rachel’s (in the nicest way) more ‘new acquaintance’ than ‘old friend’, so no bias here, but I’m around half way through her story and enjoying it immensely for something that’s not my usual subject matter or style at all. Big recommendation from me; buy it for a friend or enjoy it yourself on the – er – walk to work.
(Incidentally, if any other readers have books or whatever to be promoted, do feel free to debase yourselves in the comments box).
Funny stuff to resume next week. Meanwhile I’ll be off to the Groucho club with my celebrity writer mates to snort coke off the breasts of whores.
