Bugger Banksy By Roy D. Hacksaw - Earth Island Books

It has been a while since I wrote about some literature on our pages. Luckily, Earth Island Books treated us with Bugger Banksy, a debut book by Roy D Hacksaw. If you paid attention to my writings last year, you probably stumbled upon my article about the Worst Eurovision Ever, a hilarious insight into all the shenanigans happening at one of the oldest European music annual happenings. Of course, if you read the review or, even better, purchase your copy via Earth Island Books, you know that Roy D Hacksaw is a master of satire, wittiness, and humor. It is even more surprising that this profoundly creative author published both books within a year, and I can’t even pick which one is better.

Writing book reviews without spoiling too much content may be difficult sometimes, so I will keep it short and sweet. Roy D Hacksaw is also a master of shaping stories that no other author would even think about it, so that is the case with Bugger Banksy. Some readers might think this book is about Banksy, a legendary Bristol-based graffiti master whose true identity is shrouded in myth and mystery. However, that’s not the case. Roy D Hacksaw centers this wild story on Glyn and Kevin, two locals who live in Glyn’s barn in Welsh valleys. At first, everything seems normal for these two characters. They’re living a simple life on a farm, watching martial art movies all day and running their own marijuana farm to make ends meet. However, trouble starts once the famous street artist Banksy shows up and leaves his mark on Glyn’s barn. Of course, from that point, their simple, laid-back, low-key lifestyle develops into a series of troubles, so this story may seem like something you could expect to see in Guy Ritchie’s movies.

Roy D Hacksaw stacked this book with many unpredicted moments, so you’ll probably hold this fine piece of skillfully written words until the last page. Each new page reveals some crazy stories, so the true essence of this book lies in Hacksaw’s ability to alter ordinary life into some sort of a fiction we can all relate to at some point in our lives. Bugger Banksy showcases how acts of famous or non-famous artists can reflect on other people’s lives, and the outcome is sometimes good, bad, or hilarious, as presented in this book. Hacksaw once again proved he’s a master of the craft, so Bugger Banksy is a must for those readers who love good, old British satire and humor. The book is available at Earth Island Books, so head to their web store for more information about ordering.
