This review is from: What's Going On?: The Meanderings of a Comic Mind in Confusion (Paperback)
Ive almost finished the book, I admit I hadnt seen Mark Steels work and still havent, although I might look him up later as this is a really good book!
I was interested in the premise and didnt want to be put off if I didnt like his stand-up!
Ive never read anything like this before, a mixture of autobiography (at least covering a phase of his life) mixed with politics and social observation, but he touches on a lot of interesting things people should know about, some of them I was already aware of, others I wasnt, so its an eye opener. And being personal at the same time it kept my interest throughout, a very enjoyable read.
His observations seem spot-on aswell. Very refreshing to see this stuff being written about and Il be keeping my eye open for future works by him as a result.
