Pens Behaving Badly


For the last three and a half years, I’ve been writing a weekly column in The Sunday Times about sex, dating and this crazy, fucked up world we live in. In response I get a ton of mad letters. Mad crazy and mad angry, depending on what I’ve written on that particular Sunday.

So I teamed up with the Sunday Times books team to compile a book of some of the wildest columns and the mad letters they’ve inspired. We hit a small hitch when signing the publishing contract through, with this clause:


If we took all of that stuff out, there would be nothing left to publish.

Pens Behaving Badly, with cover artwork by uber-talented artist, James B Hannah, will be available for download from Amazon or Kobo from 15th July, with a paperback to follow towards the end of the year.

Here’s a cover reveal:

Over the next week, I’ll share a couple of mad letter snippets as a taster of what the book holds. You couldn’t make some of this shit up.
