Has your life become unbearable because the person living above you has a fondness for crack cocaine, the company of strangers and dance music? Or maybe you're a social worker, mental health nurse, police officer, firefighter, dog warden or vicar and you've been landed with someone who's a pain in the arse. Who are you going to call? That would be me: an anti-social behaviour officer.Anti-Social is the diary of a local authority worker whose job it is to keep his community happy, or at least away from each other's throats. That's hard enough at the best of times, but when your day features secret hoarders, delusional wannabe jockeys and litigious arms dealers, not to mention colleagues at war over the office thermostat, the possibility of complete chaos is never far away.This is an urgent, timely but, most of all, hysterically funny memoir of a life spent working with the people society wants to forget and the problems that nobody else can resolve.
