About the Author

Michael Foley was born in Derry, Northern Ireland, but has lived most of his adult life in London, working for twenty-three years as a Lecturer in Information Technology at the University of Westminster before retiring in 2007 to concentrate on full-time writing. He has published critically-acclaimed poetry, novels and non-fiction, including The Age of Absurdity (Simon & Schuster 2010), which was a bestseller and has been translated into seven languages.


"Delivers well-judged wisdom." --Oliver James, author, "They F*** You Up"
"Achingly funny and wise . . . vastly entertaining." --"Daily Mail"
"Michael Foley's entertaining, intelligent book may just help you get over yourself. . . . Absurdly readable." --"Observer"
"Bound to be compared to the works of Patrick McCabe and Roddy Doyle, Foley's novel is stingingly funny, ruefully perceptive and anything but unremarkable." --"Publishers Weekly" on "Getting Used to Not Being Remarkable"
