A present for Christmas, I'm currently browsing through. Its not a novel as we know it, just short paragraphs.
A parody of "That" book, for men of a certain age and I stress a certain sense of humour.
The book is titled "Fifty Sheds of Grey" by C.T.Grey.
A couple of taster paragraphs ...

"My heart raced to see her lush overgrown lawn-such a rare and wondrous sight. Nowadays the tendency is for just a small strip or no lawn at all".

" It was damp, uncomfortable and didn't last very long but its true what they say- you never forget your first shed ".

"I lay back exhausted, gazing happily out of the shed window. Despite my concerns about my inexperience, my rhubarb had come up a treat".

Yes, on those cold and wet days it will certainly bring a smile, when sat in my shed.
