I am a humble rofl-minstrel from the ghetto of Wolverhampton, where I started being a writer at the age of 16. I have been writing the fuck out of shit since. I wrote a funny book about feminism and my vagina, How To Be A Woman, that's being made into a film, and I write the sit-com Raised By Wolves. Not the US one with that famous guy in. The British one you haven't seen. I am a columnist on The Times, where I have won ALL the awards apart from the ones for like sport or owls or shit. I don't even know if The Times does write about owls - I live on Twitter and I find cryptic crosswords to be Satanic. My greatest achievement is repeatedly posting a picture of Bruce Springsteen with a very impressive semi. Also, like, Marxism, yeah?
