We have now sold out of tickets for this event.
We’re delighted to welcome David Mitchell, whose bestselling Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse, published back in 2014, must really have made people think – because everything’s got worse. We’ve gone from UKIP surge to Brexit shambles, from digging up Richard III to breaking up fatbergs, from Big Society to food banks, from twerking to stabbing. It’s probably socially irresponsible even to try to cheer up.
But if you’re determined to give it a go, you might enjoy his new eclectic collection (or eclection) of attempts to make light of all that darkness, Dishonesty is the Second-Best Policy. Scampi, politics, the Olympics, terrorism, exercise, rude street names, inheritance tax, salad cream, proportional representation and farts are all touched upon by Mitchell’s unremitting laser of chit-chat, as he negotiates a path between the commercialisation of Christmas and the true spirit of Halloween.
Join Chorleywood Bookshop and writer and comedian David Mitchell for an evening’s chat about absolutely everything.
Extra copies of the book will be available on the night for £20.
