It's dangerous to read this book in public. The people around you will see you reading what looks like another abusive childhood story. However, the loud snorts of disbelief, peals of laughter and table banging will confuse and appall them immediately. From prostitution to Tourettes via necrophilia, anorexia and autism, this is easily the funniest book of the decade. Amazingly it gets funnier as it goes on, and the last few chapters are amongst the funniest in history.
So far I have read this tome four times in a week and still find something I've missed. It's safe to say that I'll be reccommending this book to everyone with a sense of humour.
