Love, Death, Washing-Up, Etc.
By: Joe Bennett;
Description: In between penning his hugely acclaimed and bestselling travelogues, A LAND OF TWO HALVES and MUSTN'T GRUMBLE, Joe Bennett is also one of the foremost newspaper columnists in his adoptive home,New Zealand. In punchy, pithy, perfectly formed 800-word packages, Joe skewers all manner of modern foibles, many of them his own. Whether applying his forensic common sense to the more idiotic twenty-first-century concerns or concocting a hilarious love-letter to his fridge, his pieces are acute, frequently very funny and always right on the money. Bringing together the best of his journalism from the last five years, this new collection shows there's much more to Joe Bennett than travel writing and establishes him as the thinking man's Jeremy Clarkson.
