OK, Let's Do Your Stupid Idea
Writer, journalist, comic and downright funny man, Patrick Freyne, is one of the funniest and most consistently interesting people at work in Ireland (and sure anywhere else) today. In this, his first book, he shows off his genius, making us laugh and cry and laugh again. Often on the same page. Life through Patrick Freyne's eyes is one stranger and more interesting than ever imagined. Whether he is writing about the absurdity of life (the band he used to be in, crappy jobs he's had or ridiculous summer adventures) or darkness and loss (struggles with mental health, encounters with the homeless in Dublin or his experiences as a care worker), he leaves the reader with the rare and comforting feeling of being in good hands. He weaves an environment all his own - fundamentally comic, sometimes unsettling, always deeply humane. OK, Let's Do Your Stupid Idea is a instant must read, from a writer we all need to know
