Product Description

Review

"A collection of the best-ever stories from the past eight years of the infamous celebrity gossip website" (Cosmopolitan)

"It's very rude, and it's very funny" (Observer Woman)

"genius ... it is by turns scabrous (cut-out-and-keep celebrity cock puppet), sweet (knit-your-own otter pattern) and daft - a picture of someone's chin made up to look like Jodie Marsh" (Independent on Sunday)

Review

'It's very rude, and it's very funny'

A Christmas annual filled to the brim with rudeness

Format: Hardcover
When you think of a "Christmas book" you think of some flimsy tie-in, clearly written by committee and shoved together in a coffee break, readable from cover to cover in the same amount of time. In the case of this book, please forget that particular image as it definitely doesn't apply here.

As soon as you open the cover you realise that this book has been something of a labour of love. If, like me, you're a fan of the Popbitch website and newsletter you'll see some familiar stuff, but also a lot of new material, and the whole thing has been assembled into chronological order, running through the years from when Popbitch was born. Inside you'll find blind items ("which 80's pop star...?"), a couple of comic strips, and even instructions on how to knit your own otter. After opening this on Christmas Day I read it from cover to cover and it took a good few days to devour it. This is one of the most entertaining Christmas tie-in books I have read, and I highly recommend it.

One thing: don't look at the title, see the word "pop", and give it to the kids. Bad idea...

I bought this on impulse and it's an absolute belter.
Forget the coffee table (although, it's very nicely bound & put together actually- unlike the intentionally random popbitch email), this book is the perfect loo-read (no, not the singer).
I do mean this as a compliment by the way, you can pick it up, enjoy a few moments of 100% hilarity and leave until you next pass by...
i hate xmas shopping so i think i may just buy everyone i know a copy of this.
It's pretty much the perfect present - except for maybe my grandparents... they might not be ready for 'popbits', 'chad wegkamp' and his huge testicles or 'otter or rotter'.
I've loved the Popbitch email for yonks - so this is a very nice suprise & bloody good value too.

Format: Hardcover
More than your typical lightweight end-of-year annual fluff, this book turns out to be a comprehensive review of 8 years of the best of Popbitchery. Arranged in sections, summarizing the main stories and pop hits from each year the Mailout has been available, the sections are interspersed with pieces that focus on specific subjects (e.g. family tree of drug names, A-Z of Germany, Nordic Metal Act or Tolkien character, A chart of notable celebrity manhoods, A copy of the first edition of the mailout, etc). Absolutely the best reference point for PB newbies wanting a bit of background on how names like Derek & Skeletor, Chazbaps or The Mekon came about. Not just for Christmas, it's a great read anytime. Must have!

Popbitch: Celebrity Excess And Other Monkey Business

If you want to know what celebrities really get up to, this is the book for you! Popbitch doesn't just cover the same old stories as Heat et al, it gives a real insight into their sometimes bizarre world. Mix these stories with pictures of otters and other cute animals and you've got a riveting read.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an absolutely brilliant read and completely charming. I picked up a copy recently and I couldn't stop giggling so I brought it. It's very silly but also contains some really shocking celebrity gossip. Some of which I can't believe they got away with printing - they even reveal the answers to a load of blind items.

It's stuffed with things to read (and even do, I can't wait to try and knit my own otter) so will keep you amused for hours.

Format: Hardcover
Hilarious and irreverent, in this book Camilla Wright has taken pop culture to an illegal interrogation room in Eastern Europe, poked it with witty sticks and got it to spill its darkest secrets. It should have people guiltily chortling into their Turkey this Christmas.
