Dr Paul McDonald is Course Leader for Creative and Professional Writing at the University of Wolverhampton. He is a novelist, poet and critic. His primary interest is humour, and he takes a perverse pleasure in the fact that Googling, 'the oldest joke in the world' throws up several hundred pages with his name on.
About the Author
Editor PAUL McDONALD's published work includes books on the industrial Midlands and on Philip Roth. The TLS hailed his fiction - two Walsall-set novels, Surviving Sting and Kiss Me Softly - as 'refreshing, surprising and comfortable in its own lucid, unpretentious skin'.
A very witty book containing a series of short stories all in the comedy genre. My particular favourite was "Danny the Bastard", this book will have you chuckling and sometimes pondering as all the stories are wonderfully written using excellent writers techniques and vocabulary.
