How one woman took on stand-up and (almost) ruined her life by Viv Groskop( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viv Groskop is fed up, recession-scarred and pushing 40. She always wanted to be a stand-up comedian.

With no time to waste, she attempts the mother of all comedy marathons, 100 gigs in 100 nights
The Anna Karenina fix : life lessons from Russian literature by Viv Groskop( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A literary self-help memoir about using the Russian Classics to find the answer to life's most important questions.Viv Groskop has discovered the meaning of life in Russian literature. As she knows from personal experience, everything that has ever happened in life has already happened in these novels: from not being sure what to do with your life (Anna Karenina) to being in love with someone who doesn't love you back enough (The Master and Margarita),or being socially anxious about your appearance (all of Chekhov's work). This is a literary self-help memoir, with examples from the author's own life that reflect the lessons of literature, only in a much less poetic way than Tolstoy probably intended, and with an emphasis on being excessively paranoid about having an emerging moustache on your upper lip, just like Natasha in War and Peace
