The writing in this book is so bad, it deserves its own taxonomy of suckitude. Gillian Flynn, Mary Roach, Dave Eggers, Rick Moody, Chuck Palahniuk, Amy Tan, A.J. Jacobs, Daniel Clowes, Jeff Greenwald, Po Bronson…the list goes on. They all sucked once, and they all have the guts to share some of their crappiest early work in Drivel: an uplifting bit of voyeurism, based on the sold-out “Regreturature” stage shows in San Francisco, and brought to you by Litquake and the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto. Within these pages you’ll find abstruse and esoteric poetry (bad); incoherent and illogical short stories (worse); bumfuzzling proto-journalism (shameful); and pretentious, overwrought journal entries (we’ll not speak of this again). Thanks to these courageous but foolhardy writers, the world now knows the real meaning of a work-in-progress.

Utta Drivel Free is a comic novel that follows the life of Wilfric and his friends Boothroyd and Utta Drivel. Wilfric is 1600-odd years-old, a longevity that can make for some interesting takes on history. Meeting up with walking disaster Boothroyd and the wonderfully eccentric patriot Utta Drivel leads to much laughter. Their sparkling conversations cover many interesting ideas. Are 10 commandments enough to cover 7 deadly sins? Why were typists ever needed – you wouldn’t get a monk to do your handwriting for you, after all... But laid-back entrepreneur Wilfric has managed to make enemies in mystical Glastonbury after setting up a business there. This upset the Glastonbury Underworld and they took out a contract on him. The friends' lives become interspersed with attacks from two incompetent New Age hippies - Loco Chanel, a militant aromatherapist, and her mad partner, Ossie the Osteopath. An audaciously satirical work in which the author's wit will make you laugh out loud.

Utta Drivel is a comic novel that follows the lives of laid-back entrepreneur Wilfric and his two friends. Wilfric is 1600-odd years-old, which gives him a unique view of history. His get-togethers with walking disaster Boothroyd and eccentric patriot Utta Drivel always involve much laughter. Their lives cover a wide spectrum. From an Israeli landscape painter by the name of Mori Arty to the use of bonsai whales in garden ponds. From a naïve Catholic priest called Father Thousands to EU regulations requiring French windows to be made in France. From a Middle-aged Folk's Home to a conman called Big One O'Really. And whether funfairs are just a chance for 13-year-old girls to meet gypsies. As life goes by, Wilfric increasingly feels he is being watched. He eventually discovers who by, but not why. That is only resolved when they try to intercept him, resulting in an exciting canal barge chase. An audaciously satirical work in which the author's wit will make you laugh out loud.

Utta Drivel Goes Forth is a comic novel that follows the lives of laid-back entrepreneur Wilfric & his 2 friends. He is 1600-odd years-old, which gives him a unique view of history. His get-togethers with walking disaster Boothroyd & eccentric patriot Utta Drivel involve much laughter. Their lives and sparkling conversations cover a wide spectrum. From a Falkland Islands folk club to a virgin man who'd have burst out of a pair of the Pope's erection straps to the afterlife: would you find Alfred the Great arguing with Alexander the Great as to who was the greatest? And whether old people have to give up sex when they go into care homes - there can't be many that give you that much assistance. Following a visit to the London Olympic Park, the friends' lives become interspersed with attacks from a man who accuses Boothroyd of getting his sister pregnant. To stop this, they trap the man while he is burglaring a billionaire's mansion and reveal the surprising identity of the real father.

Alan Pinkett took up writing for the first time just a few years ago. He found he quite liked it and said he'd do some more if you're not careful. The result of that was his first comic novel, Utta Drivel, entered for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. He is now pleased to present its successor, Utta Drivel Too. It describes the laughter-filled lives of friends Wilfric, Boothroyd & Utta Drivel and their surreal comic adventures when their normal existence is periodically deflected by outside events. These include increasingly frequent attacks instigated by a man sworn to be Wilfric's enemy - a one-time Israeli landscape painter by the name of Mori Arty... *** An audaciously satirical work in which the author's wit will make you laugh out loud.

This book is about a shy boy, who learned discipline from strict parents and seven years of Parochial School. My ten years in a band taught marching. A graduate mechanical engineer, who loved to fly control line model airplanes, was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant, and found the Air Force a piece of cake. The Air Force taught me to fly, although I had little desire to do so, and pushed me to be an extremely aggressive pilot. Skill, knowledge, and training allowed me to advance through the highest performance jet aircraft during the time period of 1955 through 1984. Jet aircraft flown were the T-33A, F86F (Sabre), F100 (Series A, D & F Super-Sabre), F105 (B & D Thunderchief), and the F110 (F4D Phantom). My stories progress from Primary Flight School, through all training and missions in the above aircraft as Pilot, Test Pilot, Instructor, and Air to Air Fighter Pilot. Few understand the training and life of an Air Force Pilot, so the “Drivel” shows a portion of life with these interesting, actual flying stories. A most enjoyable read!

"Drivel Is Back" well, no it's not. There are two separate books written by me entitled "Drivel" and "Double Drivel" and are about two completely but slightly related matters, mainly 'Drivel'. Whereas this book is definitely based in the line of twenty-six books about each letter of the English alphabet.
