This review is from: Dirty Fan Male: A Life in (Rude) Letters (Hardcover)
This book is lots of different things - interesting, disturbing, funny and an interesting insight into a world I knew nothing about (honest).
There is a show based on these letters that is performed by Jonny Trunk with an actor friend reading the letters to music which is hilarious. This is a slightly different beast and whilst some of the letters are undoubtably funny this book works slighlty differently.
It isn't judgemental about the customers and I think the previous reviewers criticism about the morality of running fan clubs is nonsense. If you want to pay money to have what you think is a relationship with some fantasy figure then that is your choice. Nobody is forcing these people to join up.
All in all a really good book that shows both sides of a business that is a bit of a dirty secret in this country.
