You’ll be able to relate to book of anger
1:30pm Monday 21st May 2012 in Cotswolds
BROADWAY author Martin Wilson has written a book as an antidote to the genre of inspirational books which aim to make the reader a better and happier person.
The Little Book of Anger is a diatribe about many of the aggravating and irrational aspects of modern life.
But it is done with humour and a certain amount of research coupled with a great deal of observation and some ill-suppressed exasperation.
“The book is a collection of the many things that annoy me,” Mr Wilson said.
“And, judging by the feedback I’ve had, the same things seem to annoy a lot of others too. There are 30 chapters in all, each focusing on an aspect of modern life that that can cause irritation, from chewing gum to the assault on the English language. The book explores some of the irritants of life in a way that will chime with readers, even if they don’t agree. It is not intended as a literary version of Grumpy Old Men and Grumpy Old Women, but if you liked those, you’ll love this.”
Mr Wilson practised for many years as a barrister, specialising in criminal law.
He conducted many highprofile trials including murder, fraud and corruption. He says he is determined to resist the temptation to write his memoirs.
The Little Book of Anger is to be published by Troubador Publishing on August 1 at £7.99.
