Hello, I regret to announce that the previous author of this site, Mr. A.N. Other, is being retired, as there’s little point in remaining anonymous when you have book out with your name on it. Speaking of which, The Bankruptcy Diaries is being released next week. Below is the great blurb from the publisher, Revenge Ink:

Anyone can be king for a day... up to the limit on their card.

 It’s the year 2000 and Paul Livingson is in his first office job in Bristol. With student debts hanging over him, Paul still wants to live the high life: holidays in Europe, booze-fuelled nights of excess, designer fashions. But how to do it all? Easy! More credit! Spending gets even easier when Paul meets Kelly, an inspiring, free-spirited singer in a band with whom he falls in love. Written in the form of a diary, this book is about losing control and learning to regain it. It is about putting individuality above consumerism and asking who is responsible for the financial meltdown that more and more people face everyday. Is it all down to personal responsibility? Or does the system encourage massive debt that makes slaves of us all just for a handful of profits? An entertaining, honest and thought-provoking book that makes Lao Tse’s great point: doing nothing, everything is done. 

So, if you think that sounds interesting you can buy the book here.

Also, please visit the Revenge Ink website, as they’re doing some really great things. In the words of co-founder Amita Mukerjee, their books ‘are all about difference. Impossible to categorise, experimental, extreme, each one radically distinct from the other.’
