You Can Take the Cat Out of Slough... by Chris Pascoe
23 of 23 people found the following review helpful
Suddenly and unexpectedly,I stumbled on a comic genius. I met the author at one of his Waterstones book-signings, and was so taken with his easy humour that I thought I'd buy a copy.

I'm no big fan of cats, but you don't have to be to enjoy this book. I have NEVER laughed so much in my life. The turn of phrase, the comic asides, the ridiculously funny events throughout.

It all revolves around the author, his toddler and his cat, and a summer at home. Red Kite Hawks, one bitter milkman, a beleagured neighbour, an undercover job as a spy for a call-centre and a couple of doomed tradesmen all conspire to make this the funniest book I've read in many a year.
