Comedian and writer to release March of the Lemmings in September

Faber has announced a new book from comedian and writer Stewart Lee. March of the Lemmings will be out on 5 September, coinciding with a new touring show, Snowflake/Tornado.

Described as "the scathing, riotous record the Brexit era deserves", the book features a cast of characters including "Lemming-obsessed Michael Gove, violent tanning-salon entrepreneur Tommy Robinson and Boris Piccaninny Watermelon Bumboys Letterbox Cake Disaster Weightloss Haircut Bullshit Johnson".

Lee began stand-up in 1988, and has since won several British Comedy Awards and a BAFTA for his BBC show Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle. In 2018 the Times described him as "the world's greatest living stand-up comedian".

Lee has previously published books including Content Provider: Selected Short Prose Pieces, 2011–2016 (2017), How I Escaped My Certain Fate (2011), and Stewart Lee! The 'If You Prefer a Milder Comedian Please Ask For One' EP (2012), all with Faber.
