'In A Shed of One's Own, [Markus Berkmann] treats all the familiar humilations, collapses and subterfuges of late middle age in a ruefully humorous style' --David Sexton, Evening Standard
* A hilarious book about male midlife, from the inimitable humour of Marcus BerkmannSee all Product Description

Some of the 'loife' subjects covered are pubs (mega-genius), anger, envy, decrepitude, progeny, matching/dispatching, laziness, dribbly willies, sports (no ping pong though), dosh, ear hair (oh lordy lordy lord), oldies, the good old grim reaper and erm.. quite a lot about bus journeys.
The book jacket should really have some kind of 'Government Wife Warning' as the contents within is generally female unfriendly but in a good way - if such a thing were possible which in this day and age of political correctness clearly is not. Obviously.
Read it and weap with laughter whilst concurrently raging at the dying of the light. Who says men cannot multi-task?
