'So funny it will make you sick' TIME OUT

'Cooper's letters are absurd, pointless and very, very funny' RICKY GERVAIS

'The funniest book you'll read' THE GUARDIAN


The massive bestselling book featuring the wonderfully silly letters of Robin Cooper (aka Friday Night Dinner creator Robert Popper).

For several years, Robin Cooper has been plaguing department stores, hotels, associations, fan clubs and a certain children's book publisher with his letters. So who is Robin Cooper? Architect, thimble designer, trampoline tester and wasp expert, he is all of these things – it just depends on who he is writing to...

This cult hit is a collection of Robin's mad-cap letters to everyone from Prince Charles to the Peanut Council, Harrods to the British Halibut Association – no one is safe. The resulting replies, as well as Cooper's replies-to-these-replies, will have you in hysterics. Letter writing will never be the same again.

“Pointless but totally funny!”

Some of these letters are just ridiculous but very amusing. As in any humour book some will appeal to an individual more than others, depending on your sense of humour. But in the end there's no denying that... More

“Very funny, Laugh out loud!”

I heard this was a funny book but didn't believe the 'I Laughed out loud!' claims. Well,.. I did laugh out loud. It is the funniest book I have read in a long time and it really cheered me up. However,... More

“The Timewaster Letters”

This is the perfect book for wasting a few hours on when life has just become too serious.Utterly convincing, at times disturbing , when you forget Robin Cooper is not real. I can't recommend it enough.
