    Awful name - Interesting book, I came to the conclusion after finishing it, that he is not to be trusted with any keys to anything ever.

    I can't load half the pics on this thread so so apologies if it's been done. Stuart Maconie's Cider with roadies is a good one.

  23. DotCommunist

    DotCommunist my world is fire and blood

    the kicker there is that he insisted it be published under the Penguin Classics banner. Because his ego is larger than the amount of american debt china owns

    I can't recall who it was or the name of the autobiography in question, but I remember with great fondness a story a few years ago of some celebrity who was photographed on holiday reading a copy of their own autobiography. Not applicable to the thread's theme but I thought I'd share it anyway.

    What a fucking miserable job being a ghost writer must be...
