'Wonderful, infectious and genuinely hilarious. Patrick Lenton is the Cormac McCarthy of being a huge idiot.' - Ben Jenkins (Story Club, Dragon Friends, The Checkout)'Patrick's writing insipires something unusual in me: the desire to hear men tell me stories.' - Rebecca Shaw (No To Feminism, Get Krack!n, Tonightly)'Like Sedaris, Lenton is hugely entertaining, which renders occasional moments of emotional tenderness all the more poignant.' - Books+Publishing
