Shappi Khorsandi’s Teenage Diary

by Harry on May 27, 2010

It’s always nice when one’s parents arrive at a taste that one has also arrived at, but independently. Neither my dad nor I read a lot of fiction, but once a year we find out that we’re reading the same novel, rarely a recent one. With my mum its usually the radio — and she told me the other day that I might like Shappi Khorsandi (whom I am on record as adoring). She caught her on teenage diary and, indeed, she is not only loveable, but there are two moments when I started crying with laughter. Sorry, its only available for a few more hours.

Update: aha — and here she explains that her teenage poetry was inspired by Adrian Mole, which, indeed, it sounds like it was.

I am still waiting for that. I think my parents taste and my own continue to diverge. But at least we still have college football. :)

That same thing happened with me and my dad, except it was Homestarrunner.

Cheers for the tip, that was hilarious and thoroughly distracting.

Nice to see that she can turn her fame into doing something that isn’t painfully obvious and stridently unfunny, like her over-emotive standup.
