...or to those who are not familiar with the callbacks, Richard Herring?
It's a hard life when you were on the Telly once and now find that homeless people, Dr Who fans and geeks in general are the only ones that know your face. Worse, your love life has never really taken off and your friends think you are only worthy of kids toys from the joke shop. Even worse, look at the calendar, realise you are turning 40 in a few months and kaBOOM! Crisis.
Join Rich (who is actually not a bad guy on the whole) as he eloquently describes his experience of trying to grow from a teenager in a (nearly) forty year-old body, to a thirty-something with something really amazing to hope for.
I'd give this to any man who is hitting that 'Oh no, I'm turning 40' crisis (or the long-suffering woman in his life). Because if Richard Keith Herring can 'grow up', there's hope for us all. His writing is great. I felt genuinely drawn in to Rich's mistakes (cringe), miseries (don't jump from that bridge!) and achievements (yay!). He's brutally honest with himself too. The contents of this book are not based on real-life events, it *is* what happened with a few names changed.
Those who follow his online diary ('Warming Up'- You can read Rich's diary online or hear him read it to you) will know what the exciting sequel to this book will be. But I will not spoil it for anyone. Rich's life is his art and we are invited to laugh and cry with him as that life unfolds. In turn, our lives are enriched (just a little pun there... is this thing on?!).
