A brilliant, hilarious thinking person's guide to a world obsessed to the point of lunacy by celebrity: a guide to our times and a classic piece of comic writing.
Marina Hyde read English at Christ Church, Oxford, and started in journalism as a temporary secretary on the Sun's showbiz desk. She has worked at the Guardian since 2000, where her three weekly columns - on sport, celebrity and politics - have won her a reputation as one of the funniest and most admired journalists in the UK. She lives in London.
"An excoriating, needle-sharp and superbly funny attack on the 'stars' who abuse their fame" * Metro * "This hilarious romp through modern culture by the Guardian columnist highlights the bizarre reach of hollow fame these days... Shudder-inducingly funny" * The Big Issue * "If you like sharp, funny and super-smart, Marina Hyde is your woman" -- Jonathan Freedland "She is one of those rare writers who are the same in person as they are on the page, damn good fun... It's a brilliant read, a surreal whistle-stop tour through the rogues' gallery of 21st century celebrities" -- Chitra Ramaswamy * Scotland on Sunday * "Much of Hyde's material will be familiar...made me laugh out loud...outrageous and opening" * Guardian *
