WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

A COMIC CELEBRATION OF FAILURE BY AND WITH JOHN FISKE


Western civilisation is obsessed with success even though most of us have a talent for the opposite. Incompetence and misfortune is what we are good at.

Take a seaman called Lars Olsson. Having survived the sinking of the Titanic he immediately took a job on another ship. On its first trip it also hit an iceberg and sank. Once again Olsson managed to survive but it is said that from that day on he suffered from stomach-ache.

Or take an inventor called Thomas Midgley who died truly believing he had contributed inventions of value to the world. These included adding lead to petrol and the use of Freon in fridges, probably two of the biggest environmental mistakes mankind has made in the last hundred years. Shit happens, Sod's law applies and if you drop a piece of toast it will always land with the butter-side down.

John Fiske dives into the gap between our ambitions and our achievements and guides us through a comical, musical and thought-provoking celebration of failure.
