Pains in Public by Andrew Holmes

Book Description

How many times have people caused you misery while you go about your daily routine? How often has a religious nut knocked on your door intent on converting you or a stressed out shopper upended pyramids of Honduran ugli fruit in front of your trolley? You've tried isolation tanks, you've tried staying tucked up in bed all day, you've looked into selling your worldly goods and joining a retreat. At last there's an effective way to fight back. Pains in Public will help you spot, avoid and get your own back on the 50 worst types of people life throws up at you. This is a manifesto for the perennially grumpy. Down with pushiness, poor personal hygiene and fluorescent tabards. Together we can make the world a less painful place. Pains in Public is guaranteed to become as indispensable to the upstanding citizen as an efficient neighbourhood watch scheme and a pooper scoop. It's the perfect antidote to nightmarish civilians everywhere!

Author Biography - Andrew Holmes

Andrew Holmes is a writer, grumpy old man, gadfly and collector of stories and observations about the people around him. He spends far too much time getting worked up about other people's failings for his own good and has taken up Salsa dancing to take his mind off it all. he likes to spend as much time as possible with his family - at home, with the curtains drawn, the phone off the hook and the door locked securely. Dan Wilson is an illustrator, artist, thinker and borderline genius who clearly suffers delusions of grandeur. he started doodling at the age of three and has rarely stopped. Allergic to suits, Dan avoids all pains in public by hiding out in his ivory tower in front of the drawing board. He also enjoys tea, pylons and riding his All Terrain Board.
