By: James Cary (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
The world is full of well-meaning people experiencing disappointment, discontentment and despair. We can put a man on the moon and grow an ear on the back of the mouse, but maybe it's time we thought about doing something useful. Award-winning comedy writer James Cary has been thinking about this for some time and, after plenty of time on the internet and reading some magazines, he reckons he's found some answers. They lurk in five of the great institutions of society: The Government, The Media, The City, Academia and The Church. They all seek to make our lives better, but frequently end up being part of the problem. In his own, inimitable way James Cary stomps up to these gates of these great institutions, rings their doorbell and runs.
James Cary is a comedy writer (Miranda, My Family), cultural commentator (BBC Radio Five Live), a columnist (Third Way Magazine), a Christian and all-round contrarian. This odd mix gives him a unique take on modern life and why things are not as they should be.
