Description

Fecks is everything Becks is not. He inhabits his own stratosphere of crapness. He is the anti-King Midas; everything he touches turns to crap. Yet when it comes to self-awareness he has so little he barely knows his own name. He thinks he's cool. He thinks he's hard. He thinks he's trendy. He's seriously deluded. Incredibly, however, there are similarities between Fecks and Becks. They both hail from East London. They both went to live in Manchester at the age of twelve. They both now live in Spain. And they both love women who'd like to be pop singers. Were David Feckham ever to have the world at his feet he'd only hoof twelve yards over the cross bar.show more

Review quote

'The pacy script by Ivor Baddiel and Jonny Zucker crackles with comic energy.' -- Lloyd Evans DAILY MAIL 'Hilarious' -- Ulrika Jonsson NEWS OF THE WORLD 'Struggling for a budget Xmas present to keep your football nut mate/son/dad laughing? How about this for an idea. A spoof of David Beckham's autobiography, it's a great read and a confident debut for the writing team of Ivor Baddiel and Jonny Zucker.' SPORTING LIFE 'For anyone who thinks the cult of Beckham has gone too far, this parody could be the answer.' PUBLISHING NEWSshow more

About David Baddiel

Fed up with the near impossible challenge of finding parking spaces in English cities, Jonny Zucker designed and built his own 'Tiny' Car. Fast enough to get him from London to Carlisle in eight minutes, but small enough to fit into his jacket pocket, the Tiny Car has revolutionised his life. With a patent pending, the car can be parked anywhere in mainland Europe. Since he made the prototype, offers have come flooding in from around the world. Unfortunately these were all spam - offering him the chance to buy timeshares in Latvian coastal properties. He thinks that driving is 'good' but feels walking may be a tad more environmentally friendly. In addition Jonny Zucker has written over 30 books and has performed over 100 stand up comedy gigs. Ivor Baddiel is the author of 8 books He also writes extensively for television and radio, working with Stephen Fry, Alistair McGowan, Jerry Springer, Mel and Sue and Ant and Dec. Jonny Zucker is the author of over 30 books and the veteran of over 100 stand-up comedy gigs.show more
