Have you forgotten how to relax and enjoy yourself? Do you run around in circles mistaking dizziness for happiness? Your troubles are over, for we bring you an evening with Deserter, the aspirational lifestyle website for those with a predilection for doing fuck all.
Authors Andrew Grumbridge and Vincent Raison were last with us when they published Today South London, Tomorrow South London and now they’re back with their new book, Shirk, Rest and Play – a comprehensive illustrated handbook for wannabe drop-outs, dreamers, drifters and gadabouts. Along with their panoply of wastrel acquaintances – the book offers ruminations about finding beauty in the ordinary, lessons in tactical slacking and detailed advice on how to get more out of life by doing less. They cover all aspects of modern existence, moving smartly through Childhood, Work, Leisure, Home, Money, Health & Beauty and, of course, Death, where even amid the tears and sadness, you can still find plates of mini-burgers. This book is the call to arms you’ve been waiting for, giving you all the tips, shortcuts and (de)motivation you need to duck out of the system and live life on your own terms.
