Description

A hilarious collection of witty and outrageous letters, ranging from inventive job applications and requests for unusual (and often non-existent) items to complaints about the fantastical, the impossible and the mundane. For example, author Michael A. Lee pens an application to become the Beast of Bodmin Moor, enquires where he might be able to purchase a 'corporate ladder' to help his career, and writes a grumbling complaint to Harry Ramsden's about the chip on his shoulder. Irrereverent, imaginative and sometimes downright silly, these letters provoke responses that are equally funny. there are replies from such venerable institutions as MI5, the office of the Archbishop of York, assorted Royal Societies and peers, the French Navy and even the Pope - absolutely no-one is safe from the author's acerbic pen and unique imagination. Michael A Lee is no part-time(waster) letterwriter - this book contains more than 250 razor-sharp missives; all of which will make you laugh uncontrollably, but watch what comes through your own letterbox or lands in your in-tray...

Author Biography

Michael A Lee is a talented - and persistent - writer of letters who is very handy with a pen. His first letter for Written in Jest, in which he applied to become the Mayor of El Paso, appeared on CBS Channel 4 News. He followed this up by (successfully) applying for the post of Beast of Bodmin Moor. He has published three successful humour titles for Anova. He is an established after-dinner speaker and lives in Huddersfield.
