My Pals and I go up to Edinburgh for the Festival most summers, and in SPANK'S EDINBURGH DIARIES VOLUME TWO you can read about the six visits we made during the Noughties. We saw shows held in venues as huge as the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, and as small as the screen of a mobile phone. We watched films that lasted mere minutes, and a comedy show that lasted an entire day. And we saw Mervyn Stutter seven bloody times. You can read about it all in this very book.
