TOP 100 REVIEWERon 19 September 2011
As a reader and occasional contributor(where's my 10 quid?) to Lord Gnome's organ since the early 1960s, I found Adam Macqueen's A-Z history of the first 50 years of Private Eye a hugely entertaining and informative read. All of the Eye's creations and its victims are here along with revealing portraits of the main founders and contributors such as Richard Ingrams, Paul Foot, Auberon Waugh, Willie Rushton, Tony Rushton, Peter Cook, Claud Cockburn, Barry Fantoni, Francis Wheen, Michael 'Slicker' Gillard & Ian Hislop.
Although once described by a former contributor as "the most unpleasant thing in British journalism", Private Eye's brilliant mix of jokes, satire and investigative reporting now enjoys fortnightly sales of around 250,000.
Adam Macqueen's labour of love deserves to be read by all fans of the Eye and long may the mag continue(2094).
Do I get my O.B.N. now?
