Keith Waterhouse's twice-weekly column, which has been appearing in the "Daily Mail" since 1986, has six times won him national press awards, including the British Press Awards Columnist of the Year 1990. His chara cters Sharon and Tracey have become a national institution, as has that venerable academy of English letters, the Association for the Annihilation of the Aberrant Apostrophe. The phlegmatic councillors of Clogthorpe, the Eurofatcats Messrs Bratwurst, Pommefrite, Mortadella and Co, and British Rail's brother-inlaw Arnold are among the other regulars of a column that distils the wit and wisdom of a celebrated and versatile writer. This book inludes the best of his work.

He died on 4th September 2009.

Review:

Be warned: it may look like a book for dipping into, but once you've tasted it, you might find it hard to put down ... the joy in having it is that when you've read one piece, you don't have to wait three days for another Daily Mail If a competition were held for the title of Fleet Street's best writer, a strong contender would be Keith Waterhouse Spectator He's the best there is at the pettiness of bureaucracy, the lame-headedness of government, the foolishness of the punditatorial classes. Best of all are the characters he's established over the years The Times
