Product Description

Review

'These unpublished missives are as whimsical, hilariously off-message and downright rude as one has come to expect from the Telegraph’s discerning readers…an essential Christmas gift.’

(Lancashire Evening Post)

‘The ideal present for those who relish the querulous, quirky and quaint.’

(Oxford Times)

‘Extremely enjoyable reading…there is a great deal of subtle English wit’

(Good Book Guide)

About the Author

Iain Hollingshead spent two years on the Letters to the Editor desk before becoming a full-time feature writer for The Daily Telegraph. His more serious assignments have included reporting on the student riots in London and interviewing everyone from Michael Atherton to Gurkha veterans to a member of Seal Team Six, the elite unit which killed Osama bin Laden. His less serious assignments have included taking a bath in Las Vegas with six albino rabbits, spending three days behind the scenes at the Miss England competition, camping outside Westminster Abbey for the Royal Wedding, eating in five Michelin starred restaurants in one day, learning to flirt in Pizza Express, learning to Dance in Mamma Mia!, performing stand-up comedy to 300 eight-year-olds, training with the Royal Marines, climbing into a Spitfire and experiencing a Brighton nudist beach first hand. He now writes freelance for the paper. He has edited four bestselling collections of unpublished letters from the Daily Telegraph for Aurum.

Our country is full of clever, witty people and after a surfeit of bad news it was a delight to read the opinions of people,obviously wise, who agree with me. I thought it would be interesting but I actually laughed out loud and insisted in reading them to everyone friends, children and grandchildren, all of whom understood and appreciated them. Long may readers letter pages continue. Tilly.

A Christmas treat or it would be if we had the will power to wait till 25/12. Our great fear is that the Telegraph will stop publishing this title.

Yet again the staff of the Daily Telegraph shoot themselves in the foot by publishing the side-splittingly funny sweepings from the cutting room floor. The actual letters page in the paper is nothing like as imaginative, insightful, witty and far ranging as the content of this book, gleaned as it was from the rejects pile.
A lovely book and proof, if proof were needed, that the newspaper-reading public are often wiser that the newspaper-writing professionals.
(and no.....I'm not featured in the book!)

Once again The Daily Telegraph has put together a book of sparkling gems to entertain anybody with even half a brain and with at least an ounce of discernment. This is the perfect book to have with you whilst waiting for a train, or on a train, or sitting nervously in the waiting- room of a dentist or a G.P. There's more wit and charm in this slim tome than in many far weightier ones. Just treat yourself and enjoy...

Like the other titles in this series it is a great read. Small enough to tuck into a handbag to take to doctor/dentist/hospital waiting room!! Love to see peoples expressions when I laugh out loud. Also I tend to agree with so many of the letters!!! Wonder why?

Unpublished letters to the Daily Telegraph which are both amusing,funny and some are hilarious.
Its a feelgood book and removes any doom and gloom making you realise that there is still plenty of humour out there.
I did not find this book quite as good as the previous two but it is still worth a read

I bought this as a gift but couldn't resist having a read before wrapping it. Some of the letters are really funny. Comedy gold!

This is really funny, not just because they used one of my unpublished letters. It had me laughing uncontrollably and my wife wondering what was going on. You can get through this is a couple of evenings but you want it to go on and on. I have passed the book onto my daughter but no doubt l will be dipping into this again. This is an annual collection so l have next year to look forward to.
