9780091908942: Danny Wallace and the Centre of the Universe (Quick Reads)

But then he realised that getting there might be a problem, and when he did, there'd probably be nothing much to write about. Until he heard about a manhole cover, on a small street, in a small town, tucked away in a remote part of Idaho. The manhole cover had been declared the Centre of the Universe. The mayor had the science to back it up. The town rejoiced. And the name of the town? Wallace. It was a cosmic coincidence Danny couldn't resist...

He's 27, and lives in an old match factory in the East End of London. www.dannywallace.com

Review:

"The funniest writer of his generation. Apart from me" -- Dom Joly "Comedy writing doesn't get any better than this - unless you go round Danny's flat and make him add a bit in pen" -- Ross Noble "Join Me is the kind of book I love: effortlessly funny, painfully accurate and entertaining to the very end. Brilliant" -- Mike Gayle "Extremely enjoyable. once cannot help wondering whether he has stumbled upon the future shape of spirituality" * Daily Telegraph * "One of the funniest stories you will ever read" * Daily Mail *
