Product Description

Review

With consummate skill the authors have once again skewered our national smugness (Nicky Haslam)

Opening a volume by Victoria Mather and Sue Macartney-Snape always fills me with delicious apprehension. I know that, in no time, I will be chuckling away at the absurdities of someone who is awfully like me (Julian Fellowes)

A dazzling combination (Jilly Cooper)

They have a mind-reader's gift for rooting around inside our heads, and serving up every last nuance and pretension as spot-on social comedy (Nicholas Coleridge)

'For as long as I can remember, Social Stereotypes has been essential reading on a Saturday morning' (General Sir Mike Jackson)

'Woof of approval for Smelly Dog' (Evening Standard)

'Always amusingly accurate ... a piquant array of character sketches' (The Oldie)

'Another splendid romp through a gloriously eccentric gallery of characters' (Good Book Guide)

Book Description

The queens of social observation are back with another piquant array of character sketches

Format: Hardcover
These hilariously accurate descriptions of social stereotypes include - the ebay addict, the female hiker, the matching couple, the hotel pianist, the polish handyman and the hen enthusiast.

By Michelle on 8 Jan. 2012
Format: Hardcover
A book to dip in and out of - as hilarious and entertaining as in the Telegraph
The pictures alone make me laugh but the attached

narration/stories just add to the enjoyment.
