Gripes of Wrath by Simon Carr

Book Description

The Gripes of Wrath is the perfect gift book for the 'grumpy' generation. It is guaranteed to make you laugh - and also make your blood boil! This mind-blowing collection of absurd and yet completely true stories, rules, claims, and crazy legislation portrays the Britain that we have become, almost without realizing it. Political columnist Simon Carr has scoured national and local newspapers, Hansard parliamentary reports, the minutes of parliamentary committee meetings, statements from quangos and local councils to compile hundreds of true stories, anecdotes and events that will prompt the scandalized response of: 'I don't believe it!'. From political sleaze to massaged waiting lists, from barmy health and safety concerns to bizarre compensation claims, everyone who believes in justice, decency, fair play and common sense will find something in this attractively produced book to infuriate them.

When the author's wife, Susie, tragically loses her battle with cancer, he is left to raise his five-year-old son, Alexander, on his own. Soon after, his eleven-year-old son from a previous marriage, Hugo, comes to live with them too. This book tells his honest, compellingly anarchic and sharply comic story of a single parent's struggle.

Sour Gripes by Simon Carr Sour Gripes, Hardback (October 2006)

If a coconut fell on your head in Jamaica, would you really consider suing your holiday operator? Could you reasonably claim 'emotional distress' from seeing doctors at work in a hospital? Unbelievably, the answer to all of these is a mind-boggling 'yes'. This work presents an account of barmy claims and their ridiculous outcomes.
