So Funny, So Dark


View Linked Books

Laughter is the greatest of releases. Even a quiet chuckle can make things seem a bit different, and sometimes the darker the humour the greater freedom it brings to a locked situation, one where power seems to lie elsewhere.

These are books which do Dark and Funny without pulling any punches, but with utmost swagger, from Mexican satire to a Hungarian road-trip. Some of them are unbearably intimate and moving inbetween the giggles, others use dark humour as a method of resistance - a middle finger in the face of oppression.

Let us know, where do you find your darkest and funniest reading?
