Product Description


We'll leave it up to Mr Donwood to tell you about his excellent collection of 'Extremely Miserable Stories':

This is the first book I did, now republished in a new edition. This is rather an elegant publication, and if enough of them sell then the publishers might print my next book. Ha! 'The most troubling explorations of thought and situation are described with clarity and minimalism like that of haiku genetically spliced with propaganda leaflets and air-sickness-bag instructions' is a part of what somebody said about it on Amazon. Quite an accurate description, until they start on about propaganda and vomit. ᅠ

Featuring illustrations by Dan Rickwood.

'The publisher of this book wishes me to vouch for the writer of this book who is a friend of mine in order to utilise whatever celebrity kudos the writer of this quote, i.e., me, has left in order to advance sales. This has been duly done now in the form of this quote. I am sure the book is very good though I cannot remember what it is called or whether I have read it. I've read lots of his stuff and it's always good and I am in no way biased.' Thom Yorke, middle-aged father of two.
