9780571299164: Bitter Experience Has Taught Me
Review:

Irresistibly, invigoratingly funny. (Howard Jacobson)

(Lezard's) chronicle of self-inflicted misfortune is outrageously enjoyable ... Anyone who enjoyed Withnail and I would love it. (Francis Wheen Mail on Sunday)

He is a master of the comic vignette even (or especially) when consumed with self-pity. From a gruesome visit to a lap-dancing club to a drunken night cricket match in a Marylebone mews, or an encounter with Boris Johnson's sister, Rachel ("I jumped; I think I may even have screamed a little bit"), his elegant excursion into the post-marital emotional wasteland is sweetened with an almost Wodehousian sense of the preposterous. (Jane Shilling Evening Standard)

A rueful survivalist's memoir. (Iain Finlayson The Times)

Part of the appeal of a memoir such as this is the vicarious experience of a life that you do not have to live yourself ... Bitter Experience Has Taught Me is not a proper book, but you probably won't care. (Nicholas Clee Observer)

Lezard combines self deprecation with that spirit of irreverence and pride in rule-breaking familiar to those of us who grew up in, or shortly after, the punk years. There are belly laughs on every page ... Well, his New Statesman readers love him, and many more will too, on reading this hilarious book. (Leyla Sanai Independent)

From the Publisher:

In 2007, Nicholas Lezard was kicked out of his home, for reasons we need not go into here. Since then he has been obliged to muster whatever scant internal resources he has - and to pay child support - while maintaining an entirely essential wine habit. From being the adult father in a household with three children he has had to relearn the art of being just one member of a shared home, as if he was a student all over again.

His housemates have included his great friend Razors, the psychopath with a heart of gold, and Laurie Penny, the brilliant feminist journalist and campaigner who still would prefer not to empty the bins.

He hopes this account of his adventures and misadventures in love, alcohol and games of Night Cricket played against the wall of the local church will be a comfort and an inspiration to all feckless male dolts in similar positions. And an Awful Warning for those who are, as yet, not.
