Like Charlie Brooker before he became successful and married a Blue Peter presenter, or - to a lesser extent - Mr Biffo before he stopped writing about video games on teletext and started writing My Parents are Aliens, Stuart Millard is an extraordinary writer with a huge raft of obscure cultural references and a guffaw-inducing turn of phrase.
In this new book he tackles a variety of subjects - the phenomenon of the TV psychic, the terrifyingly self-delusional world of professional wrestling, an urban legend about Bill Murray stealing a chip off someone in the Crouch End Wimpy, and more.
The one thing all of the subjects in the book have in common is the blurring of fact and fiction - which Millard does his best to get to the bottom of in his own unique, uncompromising - and hilarious - way.
Every single chapter has laugh-out-loud moments that you will find yourself sniggering about hours later, and I recommend the book in its entirety.
However, I have to make special mention of the chapter on Brian Pillman.
This is, quite simply, the best writing on professional wrestling that I've ever read. And believe me, I've spent/wasted most of the last 25 years reading about the subject.
In equal parts funny, moving, insightful, and filled with original content and research, this is a must-read for any fan of the pseudo-sport.
This book deserves to be enjoyed by a wider audience, so buy it now before a bloated Millard hooks up with Zoe Salmon and starts working on the new series of Dani's House.
