Read full description of the books:
Genuinely funny book. Had me laughing out loud more than any other from recent times.
Winkler is jewish and works in an office, where his skills and originality are rewarded by not having to keep regular hours.
It starts with a childhood cricket match where his "uncle" plays in a kids vs. dads game, gets everyone pissed but still manages the catch of the game.
Moves on to recent time where Winklers loating of his co workers is exceptionally well (and funnily) written. There is a character who is so Pierre it is untrue. Very, very funny.
He has a chance meeting with a jew fella who survived the holocaust and tells his sombre story of joing the resistence and killing indiscriminately. and interesting turn for a comedy book to take.
this liberate Winkler - he resuces a blind girl from attack but then proceeds to wank in front of her - has a sex sessions with an antipodean that made the bad sex fiction awards and pushes a fat woman under a train. Then he gets charged with the murder of the bling girl and reality and fiction get blurred - did his sex session happen - did he kill the girl. it all gets muddled for him.
Enter two hilarious policemen and his eventual acquital.
Some sections of this book are the funniest things I have ever read and Coren has created a memorable charachter much in the vein of "Strutter". He says things you have probably thought.
As a comedy it has a lot of seriouis points about identity and history to make and is brave enough to re-invent itself several times through the course of the book - eventually pulling everything back around.
A real success.
