This review is from: AA Gill is Away (Hardcover)
AA Gill is a maddening writer, but gets away with it because he's funny, prejudiced and original. Its hard to pin him down. He is snobbish about Cheshire and Monaco, withering about fashionistas in Milan, beastly to the huns, but adores Africa, Argentina and an English trailer park. Its a bit of a New Labourish divide and rule kind of trick - dropping little bombs of warmth and insight here and there to make you think he's not really an upper class, public schoolboy who secretly despises the oiks. But he does write supremely wittily and well and I read the whole book over two evenings. I would happily buy a follow up.
