50 Sheds Of Grey: It’s the guys’ turn to fuss over a book…

By  |  0 Comments

It was bound to happen: a parody of outrageously successful novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, but tailored to the boys. The first off the bench is Fifty Sheds of Grey by ‘C.T. Grey’, subtitled ‘Erotica for the not-too-modern male’.

Taking the absolute piss out of the original book’s Mills-and-Boons-meets-Sex-In-The-City writing style, Fifty Sheds of Grey hones in on the life of successful businessman, Colin Grey, who while cooped up in his ivory tower of a city skyscraper, can’t stop staring at the montage of black and white (and grey) photographs – all fifty of them – on his office wall, which bring back a flood of memories of his one true love: sheds.

The innuendo is endless (‘From that first encounter I was hooked – I just couldn’t get enough of sheds and mowers – or S&M for short’) and there are puns peppering every page (‘”Meet me in the shed … wearing only your wellingtons” – I hated these late night booty calls’, pictured beside a pair of sturdy boots).

A fun little stocking-stuffer for the guy in your life who ‘gets it’ (oo-er). Or not.


Fifty Sheds of Grey (A Parody) is available in hardback through Pan Macmillan from October 23, RRP: $19.99.
