I've written a book about Donald, Melania and the skeletons in the closet. The Liar, the Bitch and the Wardrobe.

I've just finished reading a Russell Braddon book. Now I'm planning to read A Kentish Lad by Frank Muir.

The Divine Comedy. It's not very funny, is it?

Looks like this one is far exceeding the other one.

Finally finished David Mitchell's "Back Story" and can thoroughly recommend it. He uses a walk-through London, using certain areas/buildings as a sort of reminder of his life/anecdotes and struggle to get into comedy, the final chapter being when he marries Victoria Coren. He walks a lot apparently as it eases the back problem he has suffered with for years, and I presume the book title references his sitcom "Back", which I have also enjoyed.

Funny in part (one anecdote I've mentioned before made me laugh out loud, about a bow-tie), though he can ramble in places, but he does give an excellent insight into the whole shebang of comedy and writing for same.

Doppelgangers: Bodies In the Berlin Bunker by Hugh. Thomas

I didn't know that Hitler was an almost insane shambling wreck who could barely walk or feed himself by the end

Good!

A Kestrel for a Knave.

The book that the film Kes was made from.

It's actually a story of a neglected and bullied remarkable child.

The latest edition of Viz. It takes me a good month to read it.
