I'm Only In It for the Parking: Life and Laughter From the Priority Seats

by Lee Ridley
£14.99   paperback  Transworld Publishers Ltd (Bantam Press) (2019)

I What’s the worst thing about being disabled? Is it the shameless staring? Is it that people assume you’re a bit thick because you can’t speak? Or is it that your friends always take you to theme parks just so they can jump the queues?
 
In fact, it’s the stupid questions that really rile Lee Ridley, aka Lost Voice Guy. And over the years he’s been inundated with them, from people who have failed to engage their brains before opening their mouths. Which is where I’m Only In It for the Parking comes in - think of it as a disabled FAQ, with funny (sometimes painfully funny) stories from Lee’s not-so-ordinary life.
 
If you think you know what it’s like to be disabled, prepare to have your perceptions skewed by the much-loved Britain’s Got Talent winner, the brilliant stand-up who struggles to stand up, the Geordie without the accent. And before you ask... no, he really can’t speak at all. But he definitely has something to say.
