Klopp Actually: (Imaginary) Life with Football's Most Sensible Heartthrob (Hardback)Laura Lexx (author)
- 10+ in stock
A hilarious diary of married life with the sensible, no-nonsense man of all our dreams: Jurgen Klopp, from critically-acclaimed comedian and Twitter sensation Laura Lexx.
Inspired by the viral tweet: 'If I ever met Jurgen Klopp I'd say "omg if we have a baby we should call it Klipp" just so he'd raise an eyebrow at me and tell me I'm a moron and I'd be so naked by the time he'd finished doing that...'
In these uncertain times we all need a coping mechanism. And Laura Lexx has found the obvious one - imagining life married to the sensible, no-nonsense man of our dreams, Jurgen Klopp. She thinks maybe he has something to do with football? More importantly, he definitely knows how to efficiently stack a dishwasher and would tell you honestly if you were being unreasonable about a colleague.
From job interviews to furniture shopping in IKEA to making a birthday cake for their daughter, Klipp, Klopp Actually is a hilarious, warm and deeply silly diary of life with everyone's favourite baseball-cap-wearing, bespectacled German football manager.
'I shiver, my skin breaking out into tiny goosebumps. "Are you cold?" He whispers, his lips brushing my ear, making the fine hairs ripple. "A little." I grin, pressing against his thigh. He runs a hand down the curve of my spine... "You should put a jumper on."'
'I'd LOVE to read a whole book of Laura's funny, clever, sweet imagination . . . it made me laugh a huge amount!' Marian Keyes
'Laura is so funny and I can't wait to read this book and I hope it isn't awkward when I *actually* marry Jurgen Klopp' Sara Pascoe
'It's rare to find brilliant new talent, rarer still to discover it on twitter but Laura's thread on Klopp was my highlight of the year. I cannot wait to see what she does in book form. I shall devour it. A great shining comedic talent' Emma Kennedy

“Laura Lexx is hilarious”
She is amazing. This book is great and she is bound to be a household name very soon!
“Loved this book”
As well as being extremely funny this book is a great help for anyone who suffers from anxiety or self-critical thoughts. Turns out that an imaginary football manager is the tonic we need to put our minds at rest.... More
Laura is a hoot! She’s produced a great read from a few tweets that many of us found absolutely hilarious at the beginning of lock-in (that’s what we called it) when there was a lot of uncertainty. Highly recommended!
