About this deal

He'd needlessly humiliated my little brother in front of everybody, and I just stood there dazed, wrapped in silence. I will gaze back upon this moment of maternal tenderness through a glaze of tears from the wreck of my sinister over-indulgences. While he may not be the most likeable, I think this book reenforces Saoudi as one of the most sincere, vulnerable, and non-commercialized musical talents today and I am thankful for that.This is the definitive account of Fat White Family's disgraceful and radiant jihad – a depraved, romantic and furious gesture of refusal to a sanitised era .

Having loved Adelle Stripe's Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile, I was instantly attracted to Ten Thousand Apologies: Fat White Family and the Miracle of Failure (2022). Ten Thousand Apologies: Fat White Family and the Miracle of Failure by Adelle Stripe and Lias Saoudi – book review.

Fully bound in burgundy cloth covered boards; front cover artwork embossed in black; acid-free Fedrigoni paper; Fabriano Tiziano purple endpapers. We ambled backstage post-performance, and the Fall’s frontman was casually sat at the end of a bench wearing a white shirt and black leather jacket, hunched over a bottle. Despite what is clearly a golden ticket out he manages to waste a big chance to break free of his working-class insecurities.Stripe is known for her imaginative novel/biography of Andrea Dunbar, Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile, and this book, too, though it reads pretty close to the truth, emphasises that “fact has been used to create fiction” and that people remember events differently.
