Dazzling illustrated poetry from the magical mind of Tim Minchin.
This is his first ever book and features a foreword from Neil Gaiman. A storm is brewing in the confines of a London dinner party.
Small talk quickly descends into a verbal and intellectual battle between science and belief, as comedian Tim goes head to head with the mysterious fifth guest at the table - a hippy named Storm. With stunning original artwork, Tim's sublime ranty beat-poem weaves through the world we live in, where alternative medicine is given credence and public funding, psychics have primetime TV exposure and people are happy with mystery rather than answers. While Storm herself may not be converted, audiences from London to Sydney have been won over by Tim's lyrical wonders and the timely message of the piece in a society where science is attacked as the enemy of belief.
STORM is the illustrated book born from the acclaimed internet sensation - the animation that has become an anthem for critical thinking worldwide, attracting over three million views.
Now fully reimagined, STORM is a masterpiece that sparkles with beauty, wit, reason and rationality. Watch the video here: http://bit.ly/1s2DUuU
