John Crace, creator of the Guardian's Digested Read column, hilariously summarises the great and not so great classics of modern literature
John Crace is a Guardian staff feature writer and columnist, and author of the regular 'Digested Read' and 'Digested Classic' columns.
"A swift kick up the backside to some of modern literature's most iconic works. Accurate, merciless and very, very funny" -- Sarah Waters "I've read all these books at least twice - and now I've read John Crace's digested versions I wonder why I bothered" -- Will Self "A genius and a madman. The meanest, funniest parodist alive" -- Joanna Briscoe "For the last 10 years [Crace's] 'Digested Reads' have been reason enough to buy the Guardian. Taking a well-known novel, he gives a brief distillation of the plot while capturing - often perfectly - the tone of its author. At the same time, he jabs a sharpened elbow into their pomposities and limitations" * Spectator * "Beautifully observed and poisonously cruel ... laugh-out-loud funny" * The Lady *
