Ayoade on Ayoade, a cinematic odyssey by Richard Ayoade

“But how can I concentrate when they keep towel-flicking me? Should I stop directing naked?”

I love Mr Ayoade and this 'crack up' of a book reaffirmed that sentiment entirely. His dry wit is infectious and this send up of the in depth director interview provides ample opportunity for amusement. 

From ridiculously over the top statements ( supported by copious foot notes), to hilarious one sided communiques between co-stars, this book was a delight from cover to cover.

If, you were unfamiliar with his particular comic stylings then that might throw you off. If you are a fan of his dead pan shtick, you will love this.

5 out of 5 dubious facts contained in this book may make you laugh.
