Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine.The idea of Waiting on Wednesday is to talk about upcoming books that you’re excited about. I am excited to do this feature because it will allow me to look at upcoming books a lot more, and be more aware of what’s new in the world of books.
Title: Ayoade on Ayoade
Author: Richard Ayoade
Release Date: January 27 (It already came out in ebook and other places but I mean…I want the hardcover)
Check out this book on Goodreads.
Would it be too much to say that my somewhat-wry prose has changed the way the film community thinks about itself (and indeed how it thinks about the concept of community)? No. It wouldn’t. In fact, it’s actually pretty insulting that this so-called ‘Community’ hasn’t done more to acknowledge (or even begin to repay) its undoubted debt to me.
Richard Ayoade is many things – film director (of Submarine and the forthcoming The Double), comedy actor (The IT Crowd), comedian and TV presenter (Gadget Man). Ayoade on Ayoade captures the director in his own words: pompous, vain, angry and very, very funny. (Source: Goodreads)
I have always really liked Richard Ayoade. The IT Crowd was one of my favourite tv shows. I’ve also always found him really funny on chat shows and stuff (like Big Fat Quiz) so I was excited when I heard about this book. Recently Ayoade has been doing a lot of film stuff, including Submarine which was a really interesting film and visually really beautiful.
This book is something of a satire about his film work about his importance in the film world. It’ll be great to see his film work and comedy work overlap.
What book are you looking forward to? Let me know in the comments!
