Product description


"It is dark, dirty, grim and confusing – in a very good way. It’s also warm, humane, funny and mischievous, and all the pages are in the right order." (Jeremy Hardy)

About the Author

Paul Bassett Davies (@thewritertype) has been writing for thirty years and he still hasn't finished. During that time he has also been a minicab driver, a DJ in a strip club, a welder's mate, and the vocalist in the band Shoes for Industry (two John Peel sessions).

His first book 'Utter Folly' ("A very funny novel" – Jack Dee) spent several weeks at the top of Amazon's Humorous Fiction chart when it was published at the end of 2012, and has been optioned for television.

In television and radio his credits include Smith and Jones; Spitting Image; Rory Bremner; Jasper Carrot and many more. He wrote a BBC radio sitcom with Jeremy Hardy, and produced the Sony Award winning radio show 'Do Go On', with Griff Rhys Jones and Graeme Garden. His own sitcom 'Reception' was broadcast by BBC Radio 4 in 2013. His radio plays have starred Bill Nighy, David Hemmings, Alison Steadman and Martin Clunes. He has written and produced radio commercials, and music videos with Kate Bush and Ken Russell. He once worked with Spike Milligan – twice.

Paul wrote the screenplay for the feature animation film 'The Magic Roundabout' and has been working on a film about counter-culture comic book heroes 'The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers', with their creator, comics legend Gilbert Shelton. He has written and directed award-winning short films. Some of his published short stories have also won awards.

In April 2011 he was Creative Director of the London Comedy Writers Festival. He is also a director of Euroscript and runs workshops with them.
