Waterstones Says

The popular comedian explores the friction between his working-class roots and the middle-class milieu he now inhabits in this funny, charming and thoughtful account of never quite fitting in.

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here

Rob Beckett never seems to fit in. At work, in the middle-class world of television and comedy, he's the laddy, cockney geezer but to his mates down the pub in south-east London, he's the theatrical one, a media luvvy. Even his wife and kids are posher than him.

In this hilarious exploration of class, Rob tries to understand the life he lived growing up as a working-class kid in comparison to the life he lives now.

Will he ever favour a craft beer over strong lager? When did it become normal for kids to eat sushi? Is he still working class? Why does he feel so embarrassed about success? And, will it ever be acceptable to serve pie mash on a wooden board?

Tackling the questions big and small, A Class Act is a funny, candid, often moving account of what it feels like to be an outsider and why actually that's the best (slightly awkward) place to be.

“Brilliant and original giggle”

I really enjoyed this book. All other male biographical books that I have read in the past have been entirely focused on their career with no insight into their personal life which gets pretty boring for the reader.... More
