From the brilliantly funny Hugh Laurie, British comedian and star of TV medical drama House, comes a debut novel that will have his existing fans - and anyone who loves the dark humour of Stephen Fry and Ben Elton's books - laughing out loud.
Hugh Laurie was born in 1959. At Cambridge University he took part in a number of undergraduate revues, the last of which won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1981. Since university he has made his living as a writer, actor, director and musician, appearing in, amongst others, Blackadder, A Bit of Fry & Laurie, Jeeves and Wooster and House. He lives in London with his wife and three children, and is utterly devoted to motorcycling.
