Review

'The mix of belly laughter, common sense and the wildest whimsy makes it a prize example of the English sense of humour at its finest, and confirms Brown as the master of language and linguistic nuance, and our greatest living satirist' Sunday Times 'The most screamingly funny living writer ! The republication rights should be acquired by the Gideons who will have it placed in a draw in every hotel room in the world', Five stars, Barry Humphries, Mail on Sunday

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book about the absurdity of public character. It is engaging in its wit bit sometimes oversimplifies too much for its own good. Each parody tends to depend on one single trope, and some of these are rather too obvious. Harold Pinter, for example, is continually over-adjusting his aggression for quasi-political ends. The repetition of various characters does not help. There is too much dependence on a childish/prudish view of sex and class. On balance, though, the guiding intelligence to the book is congenial enough to overcome its flaws.

Those of you who await another opus from Roger Lewis and/or Stephen Fry (and you know who you are), would be well advised to pick up a copy or kindle of The Lost Diaries. Some of the more British names that Brown
lampoons may not ring a bell but that matters little,he nails the tone of the pompous and the dim,the vacuous celebrity poseurs and the self-loving politicians and authors.Excellent.
