Did you ever wonder what happens to the inhabitants of a building after the artist known as Banksy leaves one of his artworks on their wall? Especially when there’s something slightly less than legal going on inside? Join Glyn and Kevin as they desperately try to keep their clandestine business secret after the world’s most famous graffiti artist makes his mark on the side of their old barn in South Wales, and their solitude is invaded by an endless parade of unlikely visitors.
A Riotous Read – 5 stars
Bugger Banksy is one hell of a riotous read set in the valleys of South Wales, an area once famous for its coal mines, which are now long since gone.
It features the hapless duo, Glyn and Kevin, who are anything but delighted when they get a visit from the most famous urban artist of all, who deposits one of his works on their barn. The pair prefer the quiet life for their own nefarious reasons and the knock on effects from the artist’s visit make for a page turning read. I found their efforts to deter the parade of onlookers hoping to catch site of the masterpiece nothing short of hilarious and the unfolding twists and turns of the story had me laughing out loud throughout. The antics of the boys remind me of some of the best of the buddy movies I have seen and I feel the tale would transfer well to screen.
The book has a host of larger than life supporting characters, including a number of unruly sheep, who between them lead the duo on a merry dance across the Welsh countryside.
If you are after a feel-good read, full of irreverent comedy and crazy but lovable characters then this is definitely for you
