It’s not a January sale… it’s a new year promotion that means that readers who are skint after Christmas can afford our awesome books. So in the interests of public service and shafting ourselves out of any profit we could possibly hope to make from our publications, we’re knocking a whacking chunk off the standard price of the original edition of Christopher Nosnibor’s head-shredding anti-novel, This Book is Fucking Stupid.

Ben and Stuart are old friends. Having known one another since school, they’ve grown up together and remained friends into adulthood. But now into their thirties, their lives have taken very different paths, and they’re now very different people, leading very different lives, following different careers. Ben is a conformist: office job, moderately successful, and teetering on the brink of a premature midlife crisis. Stuart is a rebellious non-conformist, a lifelong student and a writer who sneers at the humdrum and derides corporate sell-outs.

Ben is tortured by the tedium of his job and struggling with his work / life balance and worries about money and living a life unfulfilled, while Stuart worries about his thesis and living a life unfulfilled and pretends not to care about money. But are they really so very different?

At the heart of this radical novel that dismantles the very notion of ‘the novel’ lies a thought-provoking work that challenges notions of authorship and the distinctions that separate theory, criticism, fiction and memoir, there lies a touching tale of midlife anxiety in the postmodern age of late capitalism and information overload.
