That's Your Lot by Brian Limond aka Limmy
  

Lovereading view...

This is Limmy's second book. It's a whole load of new, odd, and hilariously grim short stories.

Synopsis

That's Your Lot by Brian Limond aka Limmy

Tom is in a soft play with his daughters. He's bored. He's so bored he can move things with his mind. A man fills up a mate's biscuit tin without ever telling him, to see what happens. Maggie's boyfriend Iain bought a curtain. It keeps attacking them. She wants it out the house. A man is sitting in his wheelie bin at two in the morning, and he wants to tell you why. Kenny's mate Scott is suicidal and ridden with guilt. Kenny takes him on holiday to Benidorm. It'll be some laugh.

'So good they'll make you snot yourself laughing.' Scotland on Sunday

'The comedy book of the year.' Time Out

'The tales he treats us to are indeed both daft and wee; happily, they're funny, peculiar and original, too.' Guardian
