Probably not appropriate given the subject matter of this thread but I was on a train to Huddersfield last Friday afternoon listing to an audiobook of his - the story I listened to was about him visiting his sister in New York whilst having a deeply inappropriate conversation with a taxi driver and then looking at animal porn with his sister when he got to her house - I was crying laughing. I must have looked a right headcase.

 

Sad news though. It sounds from a lot of his writing that his sister is the one member of his family that he was closer to than another other.

Excellent read that, thanks for posting.

 

I mentioned in TV comedy thread that I had really enjoyed listening to his essays on Radio 4. I too thought he was a women the first time I tuned in... Very good writer, very funny and very poignant.

This american life podcast has loads of his work. Also you can grab his audio books too.

Love the story he told about his visit to London with his sister. They were on the tube and she got off a stop before him and shouted back as the door closed " good luck with the rape charge" Spent the next 4 or 5 stops watching women edge away from him. : )

Very droll family.

Here's a 14 minute clip from this american life. Act three : about him managing OCD as a kid. Love his mother in this.

I heard him run through that one on R4 a while back and started using it on a mate of mine when we were on the last train back on a Friday night. It'll probably get him beaten to a pulp at some point.

Er, without wanting to comment on the sheer hilarity of this i think you have this wrong.
