I was thinking of reading this play as i've recently found out it's about an obsessed fan of Morrissey and The Smiths. Has anybody else here read it? is it any good and worth buying?

Yes it's worth getting, you may relate to the fan in some way's, I certainly did act similiarly in my youth.

It is worth buying. I found it to be one of the best fictional, yet very relevant, books I've read in a long time, having completed it about a month ago! :D

It bugs me so much.
I don't care about other mistakes, but this one stands out like a bear with a sore thumb.

And I know what I am so you don't have to tell me.
 
We seem to have a surplus of Wrong Boy books. I was very kindly given a "book proof" signed edition for Christmas, amazing what you can pick up from charity shops these days :)

I therefore have a couple spare books, if anybody would like one, contact me by PM.

obsessed? this book was the reason why I went to the library and got Louder Than Bombs. The book is well written and I enjoyed it but something about it makes me think the author borrowed a lot.

it is a good funny emotional book.
i read it whilst seeing moz in december, (well not actually at the gigs, during the travel etc,)
it is well worth buying as you can get them on ebay for not a lot.

or if you'd bothered to read GU's post Lot, you'd have seen 'em available for free, which is a lot less than not a lot, eh? Are you related to Paul Daniels BAC? ;)
