When The Martians Land in Huddersfield

When The Martians Land in Huddersfield


Within the bounds that encompass this slim volume you can discover how to collect soup for fun and profit, and how to tap dance to great narrative poems. You can read the hitherto unpublished papers of the William Small Small Orchestra Society and some letters to God by a man called Pete who stacks sauce bottles in Sainsbury’s. The reader can also discover how to play the piano with his teeth, how to become a great novelist, and how to cook Andalusian Toe-nail soup. There’s a section on ballet for the very drunk, and a chapter that shows you how to tell the age of a dog from its bark. What more do you want? Blood?
