A Year in the Life of themanwhofellasleep – Greg Stekelman

It’s another non-narrative book full of stuff that clearly isn’t reality and trying to be oh so clever. Maybe it actually is really clever and is saying something I didn’t get about… celebrity culture? The threat of Flying Lawyers? It might be meant to be a wake-up call (ha ha) to stop wasting our lives on nonsense and actually do something, although it doesn’t make that clear at all. Some of the jokes and the conversations overheard on the tube are pretty good, though. Recommended by Julie Burchill, and it should really lose points for that. In the end it left me unsatisfied.
