John Crace writes 'The Digested Read' column for the Guardian.
"'Brilliantly ruthlessly funny. My kids read mine aloud to me till I cried.' JULIE MYERSON 'What I like about the digested read is that, unlike the other kind of digestion, what comes out is usually better than what went in.' JOHN SUTHERLAND 'We all need cutting down to size, don't we? The Guardian does a brilliant Job. Dammit.' SUE MAcGREGOR 'We all have to grit our teeth and submit to John Crace's merciless mockery. I do it with a good grace because he makes me laugh so much.' JOAN BAKEWELL"
