I’m delighted to let you know that I’m going to be re-publishing Confessions of an Ageing Tennis Player on 11 July 2021 which has had several 5* reviews already and is one of Left Lion’s Books to read in the summer of 2018!
“I am at the ageing tennis player age and this book hits the nail on the head with an insight and humour that made me laugh out loud. Great observation, no holds barred honesty through the arena of tennis that explores between our imagination and the actuality.”
“This is a riotous, rolling, rollicking read in the picaresque tradition. Eat your hearts out Henry Fielding and Herman Melville. As the hero hurtles through his ruthless pursuit of fame and glory, you too will probably receive an upgrade as you are laughing so much in your plane or train seat. Witty ( and wise) this is a cracking read. First in a series.”
‘Tennis Player’ is being published under my new venture, Nick Owen Publishing, which aims to give you lots of opportunities to buy, share and comment all things in the sphere of comedy writing.
In the meantime, my blog continues to give me an opportunity to bang on about something or another.
‘Banging on about…‘ is a contemporary alternative to being a Brother of the Free Spirit, Digger, Early Quaker, Primitive Methodist, Ranter or just a General Pain in the A***, common in the days of the English Commonwealth between 1649 and 1660. Whether it’s ranting, digging or just general wild enthusing – this is the site for you.
Alternatively, if you want to read something a bit more sobering from me, you can always leap over to this site’s sister blog here.
Happy reading: I hope you get fired up to bang on about something, somewhere, somehow yourself and continue the glorious English tradition of shouting your mouth off at the earliest available opportunity!
