David Mitchell: Back Story
- David Mitchell
Summering av boken
David Mitchell, who you may know for his inappropriate anger on every TV panel show except Never Mind the Buzzcocks, his look of permanent discomfort on C4 sex comedy Peep Show, his online commenter-baiting in The Observer or just for wearing a stick-on moustache in That Mitchell and Webb Look, has written a book about his life.
As well as giving a specific account of every single time he's scored some smack, this disgusting memoir also details:
the singular, pitbull-infested charm of the FRP (‘Flat Roofed Pub’)the curious French habit of injecting everyone in the arse rather than the armwhy, by the time he got to Cambridge, he really, really needed a drinkthe pain of being denied a childhood birthday party at McDonaldsthe satisfaction of writing jokes about suicidehow doing quite a lot of walking around London helps with his sciaticatrying to pretend he isn’t a total **** at Robert Webb’s weddingthat he has fallen in love at LOT, but rarely done anything about itwhy it would be worse to bump into Michael Palin than Hitler on holidaythat he’s not David Mitchell the novelist. Despite what David Miliband might think
