by Alan McArthur , By (author) Steve Lowe

Description:
* An irreverent and hilarious reference guide to all the people, ideas and institutions that pollute our lives. Because you don't have to be old to be grumpy.

What the papers say:
There are perky self-help books and then theirs is IS IT JUST ME OR IS EVERYTHING SHIT?, an A-Z rant about the naffness of modern life that's so relentlessly bitter it's actually rather uplifting. Dissing everything from Keane ("Tom Chaplin's face has no edges") to cardboard-tasting paninis to the overuse of Manolo Blahniks as a metaphor it's, dare we say it, more piercing than a Manolo heel MARIE CLAIRE Bilious old-codgering taken to the highest possible level as authors vent anger over the crassness and mediocrity of modern life cf. "juice drinks", Otis Ferry, Kabbalah, foot spas, Sam Taylor-Wood and pubs playing "mellow dance grooves". Excellent entry TIME OUT A life-affirming guide to the modern world ESQUIRE One of the many things that irritates these guys is rave reviews: so I'll just say it's very funny and recommend you to buy it. Unless of course you're a big fan of the Daily Mail Stewart Prebble, author of Grumpy Old Men

Author's Biography:
Steve Lowe and Alan McArthur write about music and politics for various newspapers. They have a sneaking suspicion that everything is shit. This is their first book.
