THE GIRL FROM THE DISCOTHEQUE
For over twenty years Steve has obsessed about her – a girl he once saw at a local disco. Now, in his late thirties, with his talent agency business losing money and his debts increasing, Steve realises he can’t move on until he does something about this memory that won’t stop dancing in his brain.
Inspired by a true story.
“A touching, funny, page-turning book about what the heart wants – no matter how irrational. This is romance and comedy with a bruised heart” TONY PARSONS
“Funny from beginning to end” RICKY GERVAIS
“Very funny” DAVID BADDIEL
“Extraordinarily funny! Reminds me both of Alan Ayckbourn and David Nicholls, which is pretty good!” JULIE BURCHILL
HEARD THE ONE ABOUT IDENTITY THEFT?
Comedian Bennett Arron was in serious debt. He owed thousands of pounds to phone networks, banks and department stores. Only it wasn’t him. Bennett had become one of Britain’s first major victims of Identity Theft. It left him and his pregnant wife penniless and homeless.
Years later Bennett made a documentary on the subject, in which he stole the identity of the Home Secretary. As a result of the programme Bennett was shortlisted for a BAFTA and arrested in a dawn raid by Scotland Yard.
This is a true, disturbing and very funny account of what it’s like to have your identity stolen and shows the devastating consequences of proving a point in the public interest.
Enjoy reading it. Whoever you are.
