Amstell, Simon

'It's scary telling the truth in a book. In stand up you can say anything as long as it's funny, but in a book you can say anything'. Simon Amstell's deeply personal comedy has been described as 'part Samuel Beckett, part self-help manual' and 'funny'. In his first book, Amstell looks at the recurring themes of his standup and tries to figure out who he is before he dies
