A collection of hilarious spoof letters from a major new comedy talent Whether he's offering himself up for adoption to Elton John or attempting to offload his live ostrich collection—"a big hit with the children and simpletons"—on Bernie Clifton, Stan Madeley is a fearless and dynamic correspondent. He’s also a cabaret star, nobleman, plastics expert, chisel thrower, owl warden, porn star, rubber duck magnate, conservationist—and much more. Using his "celebrity status" as an innovative excuse to plague, pester, and pen letters to many well-known faces, politicians, and organizations, he writes in the bestselling tradition of Robin Cooper's The Timewaster Letters to undeniably hilarious results. A witty and joyously surreal collection from an extraordinary new voice, the book includes replies from Alan Bennett, Sir David Attenborough, John Prescott, the British Flute Society, some nuns, and a terse email from Su Pollard's assistant.
