Stuart Heritage got where he is today by being decent, thoughtful, hardworking and kind. He is, in short, a model citizen. The favourite son.

His younger brother Pete is quick-tempered, peevish and aggressively pig-headed and, for a while, known to his friends as 'Shagger'.

But now, Stu has returned to his hometown to discover that Pete has taken his place.

Don’t Be A Dick, Pete is a hilarious examination of home and family; sons, fathers, fatherhood, sibling relationships and how hard it is to move on in a system that’s loaded with several decades of preconceived ideas about you.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Almost unfairly funny - Hadley Freeman

I loved it so much I read it in one fell swoop. Fantatically funny but also so touching - India Knight

Every person I know is going to love this book. I can’t imagine anyone reading this book and not being in love with it. He is incomparable in terms of his voice and observational lens… No one writes about the incidentals and the characteristics of British life better than him - Dolly Alderton

This is (very, very) funny, but it's also a story about brothers and families and home, and it's as warm as it is rude - Stylist

Really funny and crazy. - Bob Odenkirk

The funniest book of the year. Disclaimer: may induce hysteria. - Cosmopolitan

Hilarious ... a touching take on modern masculinity and family - Grazia

“Keep Being a Dick, Pete.”

There's typically two things I don't do whilst reading books. Laugh and cry. I find it hard to emotionally connect that deep to a book. However this book DID make me laugh. Quite a bit actually. I eventually... More
