Craig Brown (no not the Scottish football manager) is the funniest, the most revered and the most prolific humorist we have.
This book collects together for the first time the best of his wit from the vast archive of his work spanning the last twenty years, teaming it with brand new material.
This collection of parody, satire, whimsy and wit, includes extracts and articles from Private Eye, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent, Vanity Fair, The Mail on Sunday, The Spectator and many more.
They capture the essence of British life - he is as funny on soaps, Posh Spice and Tony Blackburn as he is on Art and Politics.

Review by uryjm
A satarist is only funny if you have a good awareness of what he's trying to satirise. Much of Craig Brown's stuff is aimed at New Labour and frankly I'm just not interested enough in their politics or people to know if his sketches are close to the mark. I much prefer when he is having a go at the Notting Hill set with their dinner parties and "touring" holidays in Europe. No doubt I'll return to this omnibus but, like Cormac McCarthy, I'm not too sure when.
