About Andrew T. Davies

Andrew Davies has written a variety of comedy books for the Portico imprint including the original When I Were A Lad and its successors; School Lad, Nipper, Lass and Meerkat. He's vented his fury in the Ivor Grump books, including The Grumpy Drivers' Handbook and The Grumpy Golfers' Handbook, and some sports nostalgia books under the alias of Captain William Featherstone-Dawes.However the most fun he's had was writing the captions for 101 Sports Not To Try.
