A Book you'll want to read until the end!
by Arif Durrani

Media Week’s very own Steven Scaffardi has answered that perennial question no one is thinking about; what do media sales people do in their spare time? Answer, write a fantastic book about girls of course.

The international commercial man turned budding author is due to have his first novel, ‘The Drought’, on sale from Amazon and all good bookshops from 24 September. It follows a character called Dan Hilles, who following the break-up with his long-term girlfriend, finds himself single again and a little out of practice with the ladies.

Is this Scaffardi writing about what he knows? Probably, (sorry Steve) but it makes it no less funny. He says: “I’m a big fan of TV shows like The Inbetweeners and films such as American Pie and The Hangover. But I have never come across a book with that type of humour so I decided to give it a go.”

It’s a great, light-hearted romp, but Bitch is not sure if the quote from CBBC and One show presenter Angellica Bell really does it justice: “It‟s not often a book keeps my attention, but this one did. I could definitely relate to many experiences in the book. I‟m watching this space.”… Bless!
