David’s New Book: Dishonesty Is The Second Best Policy


The Guardian/Faber will publish ‘Dishonesty is the Second-Best Policy: And Other Rules to Live’ By David Mitchell on November 7th!

“This is a collection of Mitchell’s brilliant, spot-on, super funny Observer columns,” said editorial director Hassan. “No other writer is a match for the utterly dumbfounding times we live in and I hope this cheering book will wrapped up under many Christmas trees this year.”

Mitchell said: “I’m delighted to be working with the team at Guardian Faber on another attempt to set the world to rights after the last one failed so spectacularly. So I’m going to really double down on the out-of-touch hypocritical centrist whingeing, while sprinkling in a few offensive jokes for old times’ sake. If you buy one book this autumn, then this whole industry is completely unsustainable.”

There’s no word yet about a book tour but we’ll keep you posted as ever.
