Reading Scotland's Jesus should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain.It's a funny book about the news, partly because it was decided that a pornographic book about Scottish Independence wouldn't really sell.
In chapters ranging from International Politics to the Animal World, `Scotland's Jesus' is allowed the opportunity to showcase his increasingly unsympathetic worldview and disintegrating psyche.A torrent of jokes about recent events provide the framework for a broader philosophical despair.
Frankie Boyle uses the stories of the popular press as a springboard to explain the nature of reality and the details of our enslavement to mirthless corporate Warlocks.
