Description

Between these covers you have the best of Ben Trovato's popular satirical columns, letters and assorted rants from the Sunday Times since 2008. After thousands of hours of close reading and heated debate, we've compiled the funniest and cleverest material for maximum levels of enjoyment and entertainment. This is Ben's tenth book, but it would not be an overstatement to say that herein lies some of the most insightful and unbalanced social commentary currently available in print. Or out of print. And although not fully recognised as such yet, Trovato is a national treasure for his relentless pursuit of truth, equality, cold beer, and hot women.

About Ben Trovato

Ben Trovato is a part time journalist and full time policy analyst who lives (mostly) with his wife Brenda, and one or two children, in a caravan park in the Western Cape. His first book, The Ben Trovato Files, was long-listed for the Sunday Times Alan Paton Award for non-fiction. However, the judges came to their senses and Trovato has never come close to winning anything ever since. Nevertheless, his publishers remain hopeful.
