“You don’t have to read it. If you don’t want to read it, all you have to do is close the thing and put it to one side. I can show you how to do that, Nick, it’s easy peasy. Would you like me to demonstrate how to close a newspaper and place it to one side?”
After writing “who reads this fascist shit?” on a colleague’s edition of the Daily Mail, bookseller Nick is dragged into the managers office to face accusations of bullying in the workplace.
“‘Daily Hell’ by Michael Ross was a very enjoyable three-hander set in a bookshop (nice use of piles of books for set and props) in which the perspective of a certain right-wing newspaper is given a good bashing.” – Remotegoat.
