A very amusing read and a great book to dip into

Craig Brown writes humorous articles for many papers and magazines in Britain, and this collections presents the best of his work over the last few years. Nobody in the public eye avoids becoming a victim of his satirical wit, and it is only when reading this collection you realise quite how broad is Brown's range of targets. For me, the highlights are Brown's debunking of the art establishment, which continually bombards us with exhibitions of pickled cows and unmade beds. Brown is a master of identifying the "Emperor has no clothes" syndrome and his writing brings clarity to so many half formed thoughts of one's own.
