Up A Tree in the Park at Night With a Hedgehog

Like many people who have read this book I only picked it up because of it's title. Turns out that 'Up A Tree in the Park at Night With a Hedgehog' is actually the perfect title for this hilarious book.

Up A Tree in the Park at Night With a Hedgehog by P. Robert Smith is the story of a guy named Benton who for no apparent reason starts to have an affair with 'a beautiful, sexually adventurous Korean virgin'. It doesn't getting any less weird from that point onward.

"Benton Kirby is in a spot of bother... His life hasn't exactly gone to plan. This is hardly surprising, however, as he never really had one in the first place. Armed with a philosophy degree, a dead fiancée, a brother who drives Death around London in his black cab, and a girlfriend with a history of suicidal pets, Benton - ambition-less and emotionally disengaged - embarks, for no apparent reason, on an affair with a beautiful, sexually adventurous Korean virgin."

Quite odd but very funny this book is great for a rainy day when you're stuck inside and you feel like a laugh!
