Book Review: A Book for Her by Bridget Christie

Here’s a trade secret about book reviewers. I don’t think they always read every sentence of every book they write about. I wanted to make a point of reading Bridget Christie’s first book from intro to outro just in case she had mentioned me. I'd look like a clown if she did and I didn't mention this in my review. There was, infuriatingly, no index to do a quick sneaky check*.

Edinburgh Preview: Bridget Christie

Today’s Edinburgh preview is a bit of a no-brainer. Bridget Christie has become a must-see Fringe attraction in the last two years. She won the Foster’s Comedy Award in 2013 with A Bic For Her and followed it up last year with the equally acclaimed An Ungrateful Woman. Unfortunately you can’t win the Edinburgh Comedy Award more than once. Christie has come a long way from the first time I saw her at the Holyrood Tavern when I only went to her show because free cheese rolls were promised.
