About the Book

'Full-on, uncontrollable, laugh-till-you-weep stories. Glover has become the indispensable chronicler of Australian family life' Geraldine Brooks Richard Glover's deeply skewed stories of everyday life are heard each week on ABC radio's 'thank God It's Friday'. He creates a world which is both weird and wry-a world in which Henry VIII provides marriage advice, JD Salinger celebrates tap-water and naked French women bring forth a medical miracle. It's also a world in which shampoo is eschewed, the second-rate is praised and George Clooney's haircut can help save a relationship. Bizarre yet commonplace, funny yet relatable, absurd yet oddly warm-hearted, in Richard Glover's hands you'll experience the true strangeness of the life you are living right now. INCLUDES: the Bin-It List: 25 things to avoid before you die. "Warning: Until you know how Glover's writing affects you, do not read in public. Noisy, convulsive laughter and uncontrollable hilarity among probable side effects..." Geraldine Brooks "Like an Australian Seinfeld, Richard has the great gift of highlighting the ridiculous nature of human beings, and finding delight in this crazy thing the rest of us call life." Wil Anderson
