The iconoclast of her generation, Julie Burchill has been thrilling and dismaying readers most recently in the Guardian on Saturday. Whether lampooning the cult of celebrity, old men who behave like young lads, two ex-husbands or the hypocrisy of New Labour and the middle classes, Britain's Worst Mother (a title bestowed on her by the Daily Mail) applies her idiosyncratic and dissecting wit to the world we think is around us.
This is a collection of her Guardian columns from January 1998 through to December 2000, a period that has seen the Kosovo war, the decline and fall of the Dome, and the eventual election of a new American president.

About the Author:

Born in Bristol in 1959, Julie Burchill is known for her controversial and acerbic style of journalism. At seventeen, she went to work for the New Musical Express, at nineteen The Face, at twenty-four The Sunday Times. She has written for many magazines and national newspapers and is the author of eight previous books.

From Library Journal:

Social critic and journalist Burchill's latest offering is a collection of her weekly columns from the London-based newspaper the Guardian. Burchill, a founding editor of the postmodern journal the Modern Review and an influential cultural commentator in Britain, expounds on such diverse social issues as celebrity, feminism, race relations, and domestic violence. Opinionated and assured, Burchill writes in an informal but oftentimes bellicosemanner. Most of the columns offer dissent on current social and cultural events occurring in Britain and America. American readers not familiar with British popular culture may not understand the significance of some of the names or events mentioned. However, Burchill provides an illuminating examination of American culture from a British perspective that many readers will enjoy. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries with a popular culture or media studies collection. Katherine E. Merrill, Rochester P.L., NY
