The Book

You Need This Book

My Boyfriend is a Twat A guide to recognising, dealing with and living with an utter TwatDeveloped from the hugely popular website My Boyfriend is a Twat, this book is a glorious celebration of living with a complete twat of a boyfriend. Sensibly categorised and filled with observations and recommendations, this is the ultimate field guide to that most irritating of the species, the Twat.

The website has been described as a mixture of ‘The Osbournes’, ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ and ‘My Family’ and has a readership of hundreds of thousands. Based entirely on Zoe’s long-suffering boyfriend, this book is the ultimate guidebook for those of us living with twats.
