About the Book

Everyone knows that their local newspaper has its own unique idea of what is newsworthy – and how these fascinating, and sometimes bizarre, happenings should be shared with the community. In He Took My Kidney, Then Broke My Heart, Dave Spikey lampoons a collection of the most outrageous, amusing and downright farcical local news stories from the past few years. All the articles are 100-per-cent genuine, ranging from 'Fun with Ferrets at the YMCA' (Halifax Courier) to the intriguingly titled, 'Llama Drama Ding Dong' (Lancashire Evening Post). Each news story is framed and analysed by Dave's comic running commentary. From the man who stole a Grim Reaper costume from Morecambe Town Hall, to the Leicester student who opted for suicide-bomber fancy dress (and then strolled through his city centre), no story is safe from Dave's laugh-out-loud mockery, as he pokes fun at the articles and their protagonists with his trademark wit and humour.
