Publisher Description

Brought to you by Penguin.

From one of Britain’s most popular and prolific comedians comes a hilarious and deeply moving memoir of life lived under the rule of a Silverback dad.


The Silverback is considered the undisputed king, a creature whose authority is never challenged and who does not yield to compromise. He walks proudly, feeds greedily, grafts tirelessly, mates voraciously, swears constantly and is threatened all too easily. The Silverback is known to nestle in the misty peaks of central Africa but can also be found in Barking, Essex. Meet Dave Kane, the disappointed, steroid-ingesting, metal-wielding, bouncer father of slight, effete Gamma Male, Russell Kane.

This is a story about fathers and sons, class and education and how one scrawny, sensitive, fake-tan-applying 'ponce' stepped out of his father's shadow and became a man - whatever that means.

Giving a voice to a familiar feeling

I think just about anyone from a working class or “uppa” working class background who’s managed to find their way to the audiobook section of an app would befitting for this book. We’ve all got dads, uncles, or brothers who fit the Dave mold. The stories were familiar, and so were the adolescent nauseating feelings that came from Russell’s retelling of not living up to a silverback at home.

Nice one Russ
