So it seems I have two copies of the same book with different titles. Word of warning if you already have 'More Awkward Situations For Men' don't buy this! You've already got it!
Amazon maybe you could retitle this or mention it somewhere on the page? Surely I can't be the only one that has bought this book expecting to read a new collection of stories from Danny Wallace only to find it's an old book?
Wallace’s humour is often that of politeness; the petty feuds we have in our own heads as we see someone press the lift button again. Or it is humour of the absurd and relatable; is that a pair of old underpants trapped down my trouser leg? ‘More’ takes some of the best essays from Wallace’s writing for Shortlist magazine and puts them together into one. Most serial columnists seemed to have a scattergun approach to writing and the essays do not really relate, but seeing as Wallace’s main sources are himself, his family and his friends it almost has a narrative as we follow him through life.
There are some laugh out loud stories in this book that I related too. It does help that I am a fan, but it is clear to see by any neutral that he is talented writer whose natural style draws you in. Having read the majority of Wallace’s back catalogue I only wished that he were a more prolific writer.
This book is very funny-but also heart-warming as you can tell that Danny just wants to be a good husband and father. I think anyone struggling to be a "grown-up" will relate to this book!!!
