9780141030548: Who Writes This Crap?

Do you ever wonder who's responsible for the rubbish that you read every day? In "Who Writes this Crap?", Stickley and Wright take the most ridiculous examples of junk mail, packaging, emails and advertising and rewrite them in side-splitting new ways. Whether it's a smoothie label, a newspaper headline or an unsolicited email from a Nigerian prince, this fun and irreverent satire will change the way you read forever.

About the Author:

Joel Stickley and Luke Wright are best known as half of Aisle16, the acclaimed stand-up poetry collective which has raised the bar for spoken word in the UK with their two smash-hit theatre shows 'Powerpoint' and 'Poetry Boyband'. 'Poetry Boyband' was a Time Out Critics' Choice of the Year 2005 and enjoyed a sold-out UK tour.

Review:

No piece of writing escapes the satirical re-invention of these two acclaimed performance poets. Great fun - LOL funny Big Issue in the North 'Who writes this Crap owes its superb strike-rate to the fatuity and vacuity of all the verbal junk it so accurately mimics. From fancy snack foods (...) to corporate disclaimers, they leave no brand of modern toxic text unscorned' Independent
