How Not To Kill Yourself When Living In The Suburbs

Adam Vincent

Nine years ago, Adam was kidnapped by love from the sunny shores of Melbourne, Australia and was taken to the sleepy English town of Bedford where he was ordered to live in a semi-detached house with a tiny garden surrounded by people who demand he be a father, a husband, and a provider. He's run the numbers and the only way he can escape into the dreamland of retirement is if he dies at fifty-eight.

Less a journal and more a hilarious transcript of what not to do when you're a forty-something dad, Adam documents his thoughts, doubts and fears while attempting to answer suburban living's most pressing questions. The biggest being, how will he pay for it?

Adam Vincent is a stand-up comedian and writer. He has no other skills. There was a five-year patch where he became a nurse for the money, but getting into nursing for the money is akin to becoming an accountant for the vibe, that is, it's ridiculous. After realising the error of his ways, Adam made another questionable decision and moved his family from sunny Australia to Bedford, England. The move paid off as he went on to spend ten years as a core writer for Channel 4's satirical comedy show The Last Leg which has been nominated for both BAFTA and Rose d'Or awards. This is his first novel.
