Have you ever had a great idea in the pub or bar, but forgotten it by the next day? The Pub Letters is a collection of such bar-room brainwaves. The author wrote to prominent companies and individuals (including the Pope, and the British Royal Family), pitching inventions, business ideas, money-making schemes and proposals to improve public life – all dreamed up in the pub with his friends.
This book consists of the letters he sent, together with the replies. All the letters are genuine.
Peter Jones of BBC TV's Dragons' Den called the book "hilarious in the extreme", while Steven Poole in The Guardian newspaper said it was "charmingly whimsical... a delicious satire".
The Pub Letters is a revised version of PK Munroe's original book The Thursday Night Letters, first published in hardback in the UK by New Holland Publishers.
