This Is Craig Brown

This Is Craig Brown

Summary

Craig Brown (no not the Scottish football manager) is the funniest, the most revered and the most prolific humorist we have. This book collects together for the first time the best of his wit from the vast archive of his work spanning the last twenty years, teaming it with brand new material. This collection of parody, satire, whimsy and wit, includes extracts and articles from Private Eye, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent, Vanity Fair, The Mail on Sunday, The Spectator and many more. They capture the essence of British life - he is as funny on soaps, Posh Spice and Tony Blackburn as he is on Art and Politics.
