From the publisher

'Our greatest living satirist' Sunday Times 'The most screamingly funny living writer' Mail on Sunday From the bestselling and award-winning author of Ma'am Darling and One Two Three Four, a selection of Craig Brown's finest writing collected together for the first time. Haywire presents a survival guide to the 21st century. The acclaimed biographer of Princess Margaret and The Beatles considers such diverse topics as gloves, outer space, the Marx Brothers, Richard Dawkins, Hitler's hair, John Stonehouse, Katie Price, tongue-twisters, Bruce Springsteen, Harry and Meghan, Stanley Spencer, Brian Epstein, Downton Abbey, Sigmund Freud and Karl Lagerfeld's cat. With the full battery of the humourist's armoury - clerihews, tongue twisters, whimsy, parody, farce, satire, social observation, nonsense - Brown skewers the fads and delusions of the contemporary world.
