"A Grumpy Old Man"
on 29 May 2011
A.A Gill has often appeared on BBC television as a participant in the amusing programme GRUMPY OLD MEN. In this book he raises his brand of vicious, vituperative , highly articulate, brilliantly witty and extremely intelligent prose to a new degree of effectiveness. His vocabulary is one of inventive richness (have a dictioary within reach !) and his powers of pschychological observation are splendid.
The book makes very uncomfortable reading for his English public but it is a hugely enjoyable experience . I often got mad at him and I often cringed but admit to having had a considerable amount of
masochistic pleasure .....
