The hilarious, bittersweet novel from the playwright behind EDUCATING RITA, SHIRLEY VALENTINE and award-winning musical BLOOD BROTHERS.
Dear Morrissey,
I''m feeling dead depressed and down. Like a streetlamp without a bulb or a goose at the onset of Christmas time.
Anyroad, I thought I''d pen a few lines to someone who''d understand...
It''s 1991. Raymond Marks is a normal boy, from a normal family, in a normal northern town. Only lately, he''s been feeling dead down. His dad left home after falling in love with a five-string banjo. His fun-hating grandma believes she should have married Jean-Paul Sartre: ''I could never read his books, but y'' could tell from his picture, there was nothing frivolous about John-Paul Sartre.'' Felonious Uncle Jason and Appalling Aunty Paula are lusting after the satellite dish.
And so he turns to the one person who''ll understand what he''s going through: Morrissey. Told through a series of heartfelt letters to the frontman of The Smiths, this is a laugh-out-loud funny, incredibly poignant tale from a character you can''t help but love.
''Big-hearted, wonderfully funny and engrossing'' THE MIRROR
''A warm, funny, poignant story. I loved The Wrong Boy - and so will you'' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
''A comic masterpiece'' BEL MOONEY, MAIL ON SUNDAY
