11 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Samuel St Leger on 1 Nov. 2003
Format: Paperback
A fine addition to the mighty Shrigley canon, this new book follows an almost linear narrative (well, linear compared to the previous works), and can be read by almost anyone. Shrigleys simple line-work manages to evoke a myraid of emotions- witness the highly rendered facial features of his alter-ego wishing to be made into broth- and the entire volume straps us bodily into a rollercoaster ride of thoughts, feelings, longings and secret dirty wishes. Soon we come to empathise with the main protagonist, thanks indeed to Shrigley's masterful storytelling and graceful penmanship, and by the second page all thought of the outside world- the ironing, the cooking, who our friends are, is abandoned in favour of fantasy cooked up in front of our eyes.
A must for all who like things
