Foyles Notes

As a big Simon Amstell fan I was pre-disposed to enjoying this book, but I think it will appeal to not yet fans too. It’s an endearing mixture of material from his stand-up, which is always confessional and honest as well as funny, and commentary giving more insight and context. It’s a baring of the soul that’s full of pathos as well as likely to provoke out-loud laughing. 

Sarah, Web Store Manager

Synopsis

COMEDY, TRAGEDY, THERAPY Simon Amstell did his first stand-up gig at the age of thirteen. His parents had just divorced and puberty was confusing. Trying to be funny solved everything. HELP is the hilarious and heartbreaking account of Simon's ongoing compulsion to reveal his entire self on stage. To tell the truth so it can't hurt him any more. Loneliness, anxiety, depression - this book has it all. And more. From a complicated childhood in Essex to an Ayahuasca-led epiphany in the Amazon rainforest, this story will make you laugh, cry and then feel happier than you've ever been.
