On The Table Read Magazine, “the best creativity magazine in the UK“, Anthony Whomsoever’s new book, Bizzarro! A Comedy Of Manners, is a sharp and funny look at how the human race has deteriorated.


Does humankind have a divine right torule? That is just one of many difficult questions that Anthony Veale’s brilliant new book “Bizzarro!”, published by Snowball Press on April 7th under the name Anthony Whomsoever, is all about.

Bizarro! by Anthony Whomsoever on The Table Read Magazine

Barney Digger, the novel’s protagonist, is a journalist investigating a hotel curse that dates back to Queen Victoria’s time. The curse is embodied as Skipper, who speaks a humourous “mumbo jumbo” from the walls, frequently enchanting the visitors. Unfortunaltey, Skipper isn’t so gentle! Instead, he wants to destroy humanity, so he begins his reign of terror by attacking hotel employees and guests. 

Barney offers Skipper a truce and promises to free him from the walls in a week. This commitment – and ceasefire – sends Barney on an journey to learning about the unusual items inside the hotel (including a stuffed, one eyed parrot) and toward a solution for both humans and the supernatural alike.

Can he succeed? Or will humans once again fall to the bottom of the food chain?

Veale’s commentary on history, tradition, the relationships between people and objects, the various abuses of power that result from a ruling class, and the eternal desire for freedom will delight readers.
