Steve Martin

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Humour

'A mix of urbane wit and surreal extrapolations - Douglas Adams meets Flann O'Brien' Independent

'It's off-the-wall, it's sharp ... he drops bizarre words, confetti-like, all over the place' Mirror

Who else but Steve Martin could combine irrefutable evidence that Mars is populated by kittens with a treatise on sledgehammers? In this brilliantly witty collection of pieces Steve Martin takes a subversive glimpse at the world and a sideways swipe at the conventional. From memory tips for the over-fifties to his insightful exposition of 'Wittgenstein's Banana', never has 'pure drivel' been so entertaining.
