High Tension Steel,
This review is from: What's Going On?: The Meanderings of a Comic Mind in Confusion (Paperback)
It's possible that even the hardest of hard right-wingers will feel some sympathy for comedian Mark Steels plight as he stumbles through his 40's. His relationship has gone belly up, the political party that he has been a member of since his teens has falling apart, one of his close political comrades has died, and if that's not bad enough, well . . . he's became a good friend of Bob Monkhouse.
Mark Steel weaves the belly laughs in with the more melancholy moments and creates a splendid memoir of his confused meanderings through the first half dozen or so years of the last decade. Whether he is talking about his failing relationship or his two kids, his experience of campaigning against the war in Iraq, super-markets, celebrities or schools, or even George Galloway there's a plentiful supply of wit and even a little wisdom too.
I found this one hard to put down and recommend keeping it aside for a long, empty and chore free afternoon. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Amazing number of reviews seem to have been reviewed by the same people almost as if in synch ! and all negative! is there an online conspiracy or something? i just read a couple of your reviews and they seemed quite fair, and very well informed. Come on guys, give the amazon.com politics a break! You make a mockery of ranking by just playing dirty with other peoples efforts. Write your own reviews and lets hear YOUR side of the story. Stop the sabotage and write instead, we would respect your views...
