Pope Lonergan is a stand-up comedian, Quaker and (recovering) drug addict. He is also a care assistant. I'll Die After Bingo is his tough yet hilarious, intelligent and honest account of 9 years spent caring for the elderly.
Funny and moving... deeply affecting * Daily Express *
Blackly funny... enough to make you die laughing * Daily Mail *
Five out of five stars. This book does for care home workers what This Is Going to Hurt did for junior doctors... this isn't just a conscience-rebooting book. It's also blisteringly well written, deeply humane and very funny * Daily Telegraph *
Pope Lonergan is always very funny even when dealing with the most serious subject matter -- David Baddiel
Pope is such a kind, funny and erudite guide through a world many of us ignore. I hope people read the book. It can't possibly be what they think. It is exceptional * Andrew Hankinson *
