Summary

Listen up chumps, basically the Vicar asked us to edit the parish newsletter this month, we weren't gonna do it at first cos the vicar said 'I want you to channel your energy into doing something creative', which he knows brings back Kurtan's PTSD cos our old woodwork teacher Mr Perkins used to say it to him all the time, and when Kurtan actually DID channel his energy into something creative he managed to sand down some MDF to make a back scratcher and Darren Lacey pointed at it and laughed and called it an 'abomination to woodwork', which made Kurtan throw a chair across the room in rage and one of the chair legs hit Rob Robinson and left a dent in his forehead.

So we decided to write this newsletter cos people need to the know the REAL s--t that goes down in our village. It ain't just fetes and duck races you know - it's proper f--ked up. 

All the best,

Kerry and Kurtan

PS. Kurtan wants to make it clear that although this newsletter is in book format it does not make him any of the following:

Book Worm

Book bummer

Boffin

Nerd alert

The lion, the witch and the book worm

PPS. If you don't buy this newsletter that's fine, but we are getting a percent of the profits to donate to the Kerry Mucklowe eating fund, so if you don't buy it I'll basically starve. Which is fine if your conscience can deal with that utter headf--k.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Brilliant.

I suspect I’m not obviously in the category that this series was intended for but I have been hooked since day one of This Country. This extra dimension to the stories is very welcome because I am sorely missing the series and the characters, and anything that keeps the thing alive is most enjoyable. Despite the ‘effing and jeffing’ it all sits fabulously in its context and the characters are extremely well observed and tenderly drawn. Some of the scenarios, despite being a bit far-fetched occasionally, are very touching because of the ring of truth behind them. I think this whole creation is very clever and I sincerely hope there will be more of it very soon.

Silly and irrelevant...Perfect 'This Country'!

Stories that no one asked for yet stories that absolutely needed to be told! Fantastic book, well performed. Clearly a lot of thought went into this and it was hugely enjoyable if a little short. If you love the TV show then you will love this.
