From the No. 1 bestselling author of Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spade and Office Politics, an extremely funny memoir of a magnificently eccentric upbringing shaped by a worrying obsession with cartography

About the Author

Guy Browning hasn't yet made Who's Who, but he is in its slim companion volume, What's That. As devotees of his Guardian 'How To... ' and 'Office Politics' columns know, he is one of the wittiest and most astute observers of life in Britain today. His previous books include The Social Survival Handbook, Innervation, Office Politics and Double Your Salary, Bonk Your Boss, Go Home Early. When he's not out and about, map in hand, he lives modestly with his family in Kingston Bagpuize, Oxfordshire.

Reviews

"Witty and enjoyable....Practically every sentence has its en-suite drollery... This book puts non-misery memoirs where they belong: on the map" -- Jonathan Sale * Independent * "A humorist with a gift for absurdity, Browning's account will bring a smile to the face of anyone born in the Sixties" -- Emma Hagestadt * The Independent * "This good-humoured memoir charts the author's progress form his birth in Chipping Norton to the Alps, Niagara Falls, the Mediterranean and Central America...full of drollery, his mental maps include his mother's version of the isle of Wight, somewhere between the Indian Ocean and the Tasman Sea, and a hilarious graphic representation of the destruction of his ego during a relationship with a north Oxford girl" -- Aimee Shalan * The Guardian * "A hilarious biography-meets-confession-meets-travel memoir" * Arena * "Touching and very, very funny" * Pyschologies *
