Inspired by a certain Canadian lobster aficionado, Australian comedian and writer Kitty Flanagan, sets about to provide the reader with her Rules for Life. Through 488+ vignettes subdivided into a range of social settings and activities Flanagan provides sensible (?), but funny, advice and/or etiquette and in doing so skewers the idea that something so complex as life could be dealt with in only 12. However, the joke wears thin fairly quickly.
By chance I saw Flanagan's stand-up show around the time I picked up book from an op-shop. Many of the themes and jokes from the book get a run in her show and they just come off better and funnier in the live environment. So, give the book a miss and catch any of Flanagan's shows would be my recommendation.
For fans of Fisk.
