Publisher's Summary

From 2011 up until his death at the end of 2016, the inimitable AA Gill reigned supreme as Uncle Dysfunctional, Esquire's resident advice columnist. In this raffish, hilarious, scathing yet often surprisingly humane collection, Gill applies his unmatched wit to the largest and smallest issues of our time. Whether you're struggling to satisfy your other half, having a crisis over your baldness, don't like your daughter's boyfriend or need the definitive rules on shorts, leather jackets and man-bags, AA Gill has all the answers - but you'd better brace yourself first.

    "Finally the advice we've all been looking for!"

    I dived into this having never heard of Uncle Dysfunctional and after listening to it I am now a huge fan! His advice is at times ridiculous and at others brutally honest, but always hilarious! This paired with the voice and comedic timing of Alexander Armstrong is brought to life perfectly. Each letter of advice is self-contained but they are smartly assembled together to add more wit, a slight narrative, and even a thought provoking ending. All in all a lighthearted good laugh!

    "Brilliant"
