Over the last few years, often when David Mitchell has been on holiday, the comedian Stewart Lee has been attempting to understand modern Britain in a weekly newspaper column. Who was Grant Shapps? What does your Spotify playlist data say about you? Are Jeremy Corbyn and Stewart Lee really the new Christs? And so on.
The latest offering from Lee, entitled Content Provider: Selected Short Prose Pieces, 2011 – 2016, is published by Faber & Faber today. Introduced, annotated and, where necessary, explained by the author, Content Provider is funny, grumpy, provocative, confusing and brilliant. It’s also our Book of the Month for August.
On tomorrow’s newsletter, we’re offering the chance to win one of three prize bundles, each comprising a copy of the book and a pair of tickets to ‘Content Provider’ – Stewart Lee’s brand new full length show at Leicester Square Theatre.
For the opportunity to win, make sure you’re subscribed to our mailing list before 11am. The sign-up bar can be found on the top right-hand side of the site.
