The best humour book by a UK writer for a decade
DANNY WALLACE IS A MAN. And a man is a very tricky thing to be these days. A toe-curling moment, a embarrassing faux-pas or a bewildering social situation is always just round the corner. Danny, for example, says the wrong thing about a friend's baby; accidentally follows a woman down a dark street; has his party gate-crashed by a minor celebrity; and even discovers the pleasures of wearing pyjamas (exciting isn't it!). He breaks all the rules; hides a pastry; accidentally spits on someone; tricks Su Pollard; and (we've all been there) avoids his old hairdresser. And then there are the times when he has an argument with a bishop; experiences stage fright in the men's room; gets his wife a treat; and (eventually) helps a lady who has accidentally got her skirt all hitched up. As we follow a year in his life - and it becomes obvious to the attentive reader that here is a man who finds it a challenge to even look after himself properly - an even greater responsibility looms on the horizon... Once you have read this book you will see Awkward Situations everywhere you go and life will never be the same again. And, it's very, very funny.
“Laugh out-loud reading. Prepare to guffaw at the brilliantly ridiculous thoughts that can cross a bloke's mind”
