About the book

‘A global Internet sensation…hilarious’ the Daily Mail

For a long time entomologists have been studying the life of the common housefly, but with limited success. Recently, however, a Swedish photographer, Magnus Muhr, has managed to reveal that flies live pretty much like we do.

In this extraordinary record of fly behaviour, witness them as never before as they sunbathe, go horse riding, queue for the toilets, hang out the washing and even perform their own version of Riverdance.


'Strange? Yes. Disgusting? Sort of. A book that encourages the morbid curiosity in all of us? Most certainly.'

'Based on an internet hit, its weirdly compelling.'

'Has the 'Marmite' factor, and could well be a Christmas hit.'
