Praise for "Sartre's Sink: The Great Writers' Complete Book of DIY
"
Here is the John Sergeant of humorous books, the one who comes out of nowhere to become a surprise success ...It's short, to the point, and when I read it out in the office, my colleagues laughed like drains (which then had to be cleared by Jean-Paul Sartre). Roland White, Sunday Times
Parodying everyone from Goethe to Hunter S Thompson through their handy household hints. It also contains pastiche illustrations which aren't just funny and apt but also rather beautiful. Martin Rowson, Independent on Sunday
This brilliantly inventive DIY manual both parodies and celebrates great authors ... Crick is a brilliant literary ventriloquist ... next time you need to replace a light switch, seal the edge of a sink or put up a shelf, this is the book for you. And you can comfort yourself, as you toil, that at least you're in the company of great writers. Rosie Blau, Financial Times
Praise for "Kafka's Soup: A Complete History of World Literature in 17 Recipes"
A miniature masterpiece.Daily Mail
Humour is a rare commodity in food books - guilt is more popular - but these literary and visual pastiches of writers and their relationships with food provide a laugh a line as they skewer their literary originals with effortless accuracy ... The Irvine Welsh is a masterpiece. But then, so is the whole book. Guardian, Tom Jaine
Irresistibly moreish ... imaginative and entertaining. Independent on Sunday"
