Product description

Review

"An excoriating, needle-sharp and superbly funny attack on the 'stars' who abuse their fame" (Metro)

"This hilarious romp through modern culture by the Guardian columnist highlights the bizarre reach of hollow fame these days... Shudder-inducingly funny" (The Big Issue)

"If you like sharp, funny and super-smart, Marina Hyde is your woman" (Jonathan Freedland)

"She is one of those rare writers who are the same in person as they are on the page, damn good fun... It's a brilliant read, a surreal whistle-stop tour through the rogues' gallery of 21st century celebrities" (Chitra Ramaswamy Scotland on Sunday)

"Much of Hyde's material will be familiar...made me laugh out loud...outrageous and opening" (Guardian)

About the Author

Marina Hyde read English at Christ Church, Oxford, and started in journalism as a temporary secretary on the Sun's showbiz desk. She has worked at the Guardian since 2000, where her three weekly columns - on sport, celebrity and politics - have won her a reputation as one of the funniest and most admired journalists in the UK. She lives in London.
