Product description

Review

‘If you like Harry Potter and the Da Vinci Code, why are you even looking at this, you retard?’
Jimmy Carr

‘If you are suffocating in cosy Christmas cheer, this abrasively cynical, relentlessly misanthropic book might feel like a welcome faceful of ice-cold water straight out of the Clyde.’
The Sunday Times

‘Quite triumphantly, this is the most abusive, obscene, insulting memoir yet published…Many, many funny lines here. A difficult book to read sedately in public.’
The Evening Standard

‘He has a shocking, acid-tongued wit and his sharp observations make this one of the funniest autobiographies I’ve read.’
The Sun

‘an original mix of confession and stand-up monologue … it’s rather gratifying that it’s outselling most of the books by more famous figures.’
The Guardian

‘a refreshing antidote to the usual feelgood books by TV stars.’
The Independent

‘My Shit Life So Far, showcases that cruel and unusual comedy that's become Frankie’s trademark, and should probably be enjoyed far away from hot liquids… bizarre, intelligent and abusively hilarious.’
**** The List

‘frequently funny.’
Heat

‘biting wit.’
Independent on Sunday

‘Fans of Boyle's dark style will hope this book provides laughs-a-plenty and an antidote to the play-it-safe, sickly sweet autobiographies of other so-called celebrities. They will not be disappointed.’
Dave TV

‘Only read this book in public if you have no qualms about blowing coffee through your nose in spurts of guilty laughter … Punchier than a cage fighter, with more disclosures than an episode of Parky … Addictive and expertly brutal.’
Hotline

About the Author

Francis Martin Patrick 'Frankie' Boyle was born in Glasgow in 1972. Most recognised for this regular spot on BBC 2's Mock the Week, Frankie's cruel but perfectly constructed gags on politicians, celebrities and society as a whole have cemented his name in the world of comedy. 'John Prescott is so fat, that he can't put a tie and belt on without turning into sausages.' Nice.
