No one turns up where they're not wanted quite like John Safran. In this hilarious and disorienting adventure, he gets among our diverse community of white nationalists, ISIS supporters, anarchists and more, digging away at the contradictions that many would prefer be left unexamined. Who is this black puppet master among the white nationalists? And this Muslim fundamentalist who geeks out on Monty Python? Is there a secret radicalisation network operating in John’s own Jewish suburb?

This might be the funniest book ever written about Australian race relations and religious extremists of every sort. Previous fans of Sunday Night Safran on the radio will be thrilled to have hour upon hour of John's inimitable narration making the book even funnier. As well as being highly engaging, it's intelligent and investigates divisive movements and individuals that many other writers would shy away from.

David Mitchell, who you may know for his inappropriate anger on every TV panel show except Never Mind the Buzzcocks, his look of permanent discomfort on C4 sex comedy Peep Show, his online commenter-baiting in The Observer or just for wearing a stick-on moustache in That Mitchell and Webb Look, has written a book about his life.

It was a lot of fun getting to know one of my favourite comedians. I couldn't stop listening.

Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

This book is delightful and very silly in places. It made me laugh so loud in my car at the traffic lights people turned to look at me. If you love Miranda's TV show you'll love this, it was like getting to hang out with Miranda while I did my housework. Miranda is a very likeable and relatable character.
