Jon Cleave Releases His First Novel

Thursday, Jul 3, 2014

Jon Cleave, of Fisherman’s Friends fame, has released his first novel Nasty Pasty.

The Port Isaac local has no limit to his creative talents. He’s risen to fame in recent years singing sea shanties with the Fisherman’s Friends.

He’s also conquered children’s literature, writing Gully the Mischievous Seagull, a successful series of children’s books

Now his first novel, Nasty Pasty, is sure to have you in stitches.

The story sees a TV chef bent on bulldozing his way through Cornish culture to become the Pasty King of the World. But will he succeed? Or will Oggy Sloggett, the custodian of the pasty recipe, emerge to save the day?

Radio DJ Mark Radcliffe described the book as “the finest novel to have come out of Port Isaac this year”.

Writing in the Sunday Times, Stuart Barnes said: “First singing, then literature; which unsuspecting art form will Jon Cleave ravage next? Portraiture, mime, contemporary dance? Is nothing sacrosanct?”

The novel is available on Amazon, or you can get yourself a signed copy by visiting
