  1. Michael Ian Black is not that well known over here. He is a comedy actor and writer, who wrote the Simon Pegg film Run Fatboy Run and stars in Wet Hot American Summer (currently on Netflix). He started to pop up on my Twitter feed and I found him quite funny so i bought this to read a little more of him. You're Not Doing It Right is a collection of essays centred around his wife Martha; meeting her, the start of their relationship, their marriage and having children. Of most interest is his writings about the mundane stuff of marriage, the stuff that doesn't feature on anniversary cards. How hard it is to get through life with a newborn. How hard it is for 2 adults to discuss money matters rationally. Black is funny, not laugh out loud funny, but amusing and refreshingly honest. Some of the stuff he says about his life sears a little but it's not things we haven't all thought at times. It's not an important read, it won't change your life, but it's like having a funny, honest conversation with your friend. And because he is so honest, what he talks about towards the end, what he has learned and would change will leave you with a wee lump in your throat.
