Summary


Viewegh's skill at writing supple dialogue and providing precise observations and pungent punch-lines is at its most evident in this book. It is a selection of newspaper columns from 1994-5 and 1999-2000, in which he comments with humour, sometimes with sarcasm, on the world of politics, the gutter press, and commercial television.

Reviews

"Viewegh’s newspaper columns are concentrated doses of his skilled use of dialogue, wit and sarcasm and give full rein to his unrivalled ability to analyse the language of contemporary political figures."  
Josef Chuchma, MF Dnes
