What they said about the first edition . . .

"All those things that we know and love about Christmas are here reduced by the turgid rumblings of this inconsequential Irish artist. Apart from that it is quite a good read because there are so few words in it." Lucinda Breathnach, West Cork Gazette

"A sharply critical masterpiece adopting a blunt approach to a subject crying out for urgent review. Delivered in whispered prose a poetically dichotomous polyphony of discursively contrapuntal polemic." Seamas MacPraline, Adrigole and District Ovine Herder

"The critic is dead . . . Long Live The Critic"

Since no real live critic will ever look at the book I made some criticisms up for fun!


About the Author

Andrew Shiels
andyphoto Ireland

"Paradoxically, Shiels the artist appears to live in some kind of Panglossian dystopia, almost completely bereft of comprehension." Princess Rustina of Rustonia

"If most people knew that he spends a good deal of each day pretending to be a horse, perhaps they might view his work with a little more understanding." Jenny Saddler (Horse & Mousse)

"Yes, he is an artist of sorts! But nobody can pin down exactly what sort. Most of us just wish he would stop what he is doing. We are constantly suffering his disruptive activities." Blaithnaid Ní Corsette. (The Arts Programme, Radio Rustonia)

"They should never have let him near a camera!" Pond Wader. (Water Hyacinth Gazette)

"At least they've managed to stop him painting. That is some relief while we work on curbing his other efforts." Chris Cloister (International Altos Magazine)
