David Thorne has quickly established himself as the world’s leading internet troublemaker. Since his emailed efforts to settle an overdue bill with a drawing of a spider achieved massive worldwide online exposure in 2008, millions of people have followed Thorne’s hilarious exchanges with unwitting victims reported via the mainstream media, online and email inboxes globally. Thorne’s razor-sharp writings, compiled in his first book “The Internet is a Playground” say something about everyday life we can all relate to. “If the internet had a heart, David Thorne would be it’s mitral valve.” Mil Millington, Author, ‘Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About’ “There is usually a fine line between genius and insanity but in this case it has become very blurred. Some of the funniest and most clever writing I have read in years.” Terrance Fielding, WIRED Magazine “I laughed so hard and uncontrollably I could hardly breath. Reading this on public transport is not a good idea!” Kate Huchinson, editor, Penthouse magazine “David Thorne’s wit is as sharp, and often as cutting, as a scalpel. Hilarious and brilliant.” Dave Masters, editor, The Sun Newspaper “..one the most entertaining and interesting writers in years.” Matthew Moore, editor, Telegraph.co.uk

Review:
Publishers Weekly Galley Talk: " "David Thorne's "The Internet is a Playground" (Tarcher) is the funniest book I've read in years. I had to stop reading it repeatedly because I was laughing so hard. I called people I know and read parts out loud over the phone. Thorne, who is equal parts social cartographer, psychologist, and sociopath, stays true to his name by poking fun and puncturing the egos of strangers and friends alike. With just a simple push, even the simplest of situations explodes into the wildest and most outrageously funny exchanges. Interspersed throughout are Thorne's razor sharp musings on random bits; sucker punches both juvenile and brilliant. If you can make it through the story of "Missy, The Missing Cat" without cheering out loud at the author's sheer bravado, you miss the point of this wildly entertaining book completely. Wicked, breath-taking, irreverent, and absolutely contagious, "The Internet is a Playground" is an effortless handsell: just start reading out
About the Author:
David Thorne is the author of The Internet Is a Playground: Irreverent Correspondences of an Evil Online Genius, I'll Go Home Then, It's Warm and Has Chairs: The Unpublished Emails, and more.
