9780099564928: Dispatches From the Sofa: The Collected Wisdom of Frank Skinner

For the past two years, Frank Skinner has written a weekly column for The Times. Without fail, he sat down and wracked his brain to think of something to write 900 words about. Dispatches from the Sofa is the brilliant result.

Pondering such random topics as the potential demise of Margaret Thatcher, the love-hate relationship with your football club, the banking crisis and the evil phenomenon of Jedward, this is wit and wisdom, and a fine sense of the absurd, all rolled into one.

About the Author:

Born in January 1957 FRANK SKINNER grew up in Oldbury and Smethwick; West Midlands. After various jobs, he performed his first stand up gig in December 1987 and went on to win the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival. He is currently a radio presenter on the Saturday morning slot on Absolute Radio and host of the BBC2 talk show Opinionated.

Frank has written two previous books, the first of which was Frank Skinner by Frank Skinner, the top selling autobiography of 2002, spending 46 weeks in The Sunday Times Bestseller List. His second book, the Richard & Judy Book Club Award-winning Frank Skinner on the Road, chronicled his 2007, sell-out return to stand-up, a decade after his then record-breaking 6,000-seater gig at Battersea Power Station.
