Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Kitty Flanagan has been locked in an industrial freezer in Western Australia, insulted about the size of her lady parts in Singapore and borne witness to the world's most successful wife swap in suburban Sydney. It's these valuable lessons from The University of Life that have taught her so many things, including the fact that cliches like 'The University of Life' are reeeally annoying.
In these funny, true stories, Kitty provides advice you didn't even know you needed. Useful tips on how not to get murdered while hitch-hiking, how to break up with someone the wrong way, and the right way, why it's important to keep your top on while waitressing, and why women between the ages of thirty-seven and forty-two should be banned from internet dating.
Bridge Burning and Other Hobbies is a collection of laugh-out-loud, cautionary tales from one of Australia's favourite comedians.
'Finally, a book that doesn't tell you to stop eating sugar.'
KITTY - CAKE ENTHUSIAST
'Shut your mouth Flanagan or you'll do fifteen in the freezer.'
GARY - FACTORY FOREMAN
'I was hoping there'd be more about arson.'
BERNIE - LOCAL FIRESTARTER
It was the same as being at one of Kitty’s fabulous shows. Lots of laughs.
An easy enjoyable read
Kitty has a knack of telling a story that almost feels as if you are in the room with her. The book started out slowly and then brings you in to seemingly play your own part.
A real page turner.
Ran out of steam
I find Kitty Flannigan quite funny in real life but now realise that I only ever see her for short stints at a time. Got a few laughs here and there but in the end this book became quite tedious. On another note, good luck to anyone who finds themselves in a relationship with her, you would be scrutinised to death.
