Developed from an Audible Original spoken word piece, a diary of sorts of 2016, focusing on Stanhope’s road life and his relationship with partner Amy “Bingo” Bingaman. Planet Stanhope is an interesting place to visit, and this is funny and bleak at the same time, but the journey’s a rough ride nevertheless. Opinions may vary about the extent to which self-loathing sometimes on display here is well-earned and/or entirely justified by behaviour and selfishness.
My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
The stand-up comic’s autobiography, focusing on his relationship with – and the death of – his mother. A million miles from the “dead dad” comedy trope of a few years back, this is a scabrous, honest, and funny account of Stanhope’s life, loves and borderline criminal experiences to date, and of the influence of his mum on his worldview. Recommended.
