Product Description

Book Description

A riotously funny and wickedly sharp collection of Frank Skinner's columns written for The Times, along with lots of never before seen material.

From the Back Cover

Over the course of the last ten years, Frank Skinner has toured sell-out stand-up shows, hosted countless TV shows and an award-winning radio programme, written two well-received volumes of memoir, as well as recording a couple of pop songs and learning to play the ukulele. He has been a busy man.

Yet, for the last two years, he has also managed to squeeze in a weekly column for The Times. Without fail, he sat down every week and wracked his brain to think of something to write 900 words about. Dispatches From the Sofa is the brilliant result.

Alighting on such random topics as the potential demise of Margaret Thatcher, the love-hate relationship with your football club, Mike Read's musical of Oscar Wilde, fat pop stars, Serbian breakfast banter, the pleasures of air-guitar, the banking crisis and the evil phenomenon of Jedward, this is a thought-provoking, wide-reaching, hilarious and self-deprecating collection - which also includes the first two chapters from his unpublished novel - from one of our funniest, quickest and most beloved comedians.

Praise for Frank Skinner's previous work

'Funny and...well crafted. [Skinner] has an enormous care for words' Daily Telegraph

'A minor masterpiece...A classic of its kind' Guardian

'I cried, and also laughed so much I fell off my chair.' Independent on Sunday
