Humour Sports Books

Contaminated Samples

A free sampler containing the outrageous first chapters from Frankie's three books My Shit Life So Far, Work! Consume! Die! and Scotland's Jesus. Perfect for when you want to feel deeply offended.

MY SHIT LIFE SO FAR: 'I don't think anyone can have written an autobiography without at some point thinking "Why would anyone want to know this shit?" I've always read them thinking "I don't want to know where Steve Tyler grew up, just tell me how many groupies he f**ked!"'

So begins Frankie's outrageous, laugh-out loud, cynical rant on life as he knows it.

WORK! CONSUME DIE!: Stand-up comedy's favourite pessimist, Frankie Boyle, offers his laugh-out-loud, cynical rant on life as he knows it. He describes your reality as viewed through a bloodshot eye pressed against a shit-smeared telescope, focused on hell.

SCOTLAND'S JESUS: Reading Scotland's Jesus should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain.

Make Us Dream: A Liverpool Fan's View of the 2013/14 Season

LAST summer few football fans would've given Liverpool a realistic chance of Champions League qualification, let alone a title challenge sustained to the last day. But one man believed.

The 2013/14 season marked the year when Brendan Rodgers revolutionised the club by restoring the faith and reconnecting it with its fans.

Throughout the entire campaign he oversaw a breathtaking brand of football spearheaded by Suarez, Sturridge, Sterling and Steven Gerrard -- or "poetry in motion" as the Kop called it.

The Anfield faithful asked the squad to "make us dream", and Liverpool were finally awoken from being one of the game's sleeping giants to becoming a force again.

Relive all the classic moments through the eyes of an obsessive, lifelong fan on the road with Rodgers' Reds. And experience fly-on-the-wall accounts of the sights, sounds, songs and smells of match-days both home and away.

Highlights on the journey include the Old Trafford trouncing, a demolition derby over Everton, an annihilation of Arsenal and spectacular wins over Spurs. Plus, all 101 league goals, coverage of all competitions and a pre-season round-up.

Crammed with in-depth analysis, humour and facts Make Us Dream is not the closing of a chapter, but the start of a compelling new one.
