Imagine My Surprise...: Unpublished Letters to the Daily Telegraph by Iain Hollingshead
The essential humour gift book of the year returns in the anticipated fourth volume of this bestselling series - guaranteed to provoke laughter and amazement. The first volume of unpublished letters to the Daily Telegraph, Am I Alone in Thinking...?, not only became a Christmas bestseller but also established the paper's letter-writers as a uniquely waggish, eccentric and maverick institution. They can be relied upon,particularly in the letters slightly too pungent or off-the wall to print, to offer a new and memorable take on the great events of the day. Now, with the fourth book in the series, Iain Hollingshead collects together our favourite letterwriters on everything from this summer's Olympics to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, as well as the rather more obscure concerns voiced by 'M', the habitual correspondent who believes himself to be the head of MI5 but writes from an internet cafe in Bristol. Trenchant, choleric and hilariously funny, this will once again be the humour book of the year.
