An hilarious assemblement of articles written by Brooker. Funny and scathing as ever a must read for anyone with a bit of bile in them. Love this then give Screenburn and Dawn of the Dumb a go.

The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell – Aldous Huxley

Aldous Huxley got stoned on mescaline and then wrote down his experience. Enough said. The band the Doors named themselves after this book so it’s evidently quite influential.

Hemingway’s Boat – Paul Hendrickson

A semi-biographic book about Hemingway and his boat. A simple enough concept but Hendrickson’s research and love for his subject matter is evident. Deeply involved and thought provoking book about one of the greatest American writers of all time.

Thanks for reading! F&B.
