Product description


"A comic genius." (The Times)

"The field is led by Alan Coren." (Observer)

"Coren is our heavyweight champion humorist, over-powering as well as graceful, able to do everything, sometimes in the same short article." (Guardian)

"The funniest writer in Britain today." (Sunday Times)

"Coruscating! A master humorist!" (Daily Telegraph)

"He has a comic imagination which can actually render your jaded scribe flabbergasted." (Clive James Observer)

"His power of observation knows no bounds." (Daily Mail)

"Coren's extraordinary gift for seeing the funny side of everyday life is in abundant evidence throughout this book, which will have you chuckling out loud." (Good Book Guide)

"This book brings together a well-chosen and quiveringly funny sample of [Coren's] comic writing . . . The humour in these columns isn't about one-liners and the best pieces take a fertile idea and run a mile with it, sparking a shower of bon mots in the process." (James Purdon Observer)

"Accomplished." (Colin Waters Sunday Herald)

Book Description

The ultimate anthology of the humorous writing of the 'Sage of Cricklewood'.
