Sorting Out Billy

Jo Brand

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The wonderful first novel from the Queen of Comedy, Jo Brand, reissued with a brilliant new cover.

Jo Brand tells it like it is in her darkly comic and sharply observed novel about the things we do for love.

Billy is a lad. He's a laugh, he's loud, he behaves badly and Sarah is besotted with him. But after another 'accident' involving Billy's temper, Sarah's face and a night in the A&E, Sarah's friends Martha and Flower decide that it's time to take action. What should they do? Reason with him? Send him to anger management classes? Hire a hit man?

Jo Brand

Jo Brand started life as a good girl, became a bad one for quite a bit, but now she's gunning for Reformed 'Man Hater' turned National Disgrace. Being grumpy enables her to react in a perfectly reasonable way to things that in the past she would have suppressed for the sake of keeping the peace/being polite/not making someone angry. Starting comedy at thirty (and as an ex-psychiatric nurse) also meant she gave much less of a toss about what other people thought of her.

The host of several TV shows including the award-winning Channel 4 show, Through The Cakehole, Jo has made legendary appearances on many others from Have I Got News For You to Would I Lie To You to QI.

She is married, has two daughters and lives in London
