About this book
Since the 1990s, "Private Eye"'s 'What You Didn't Miss" column has trained a vigilant lens on some of the great literary reputations of our age. Highlights of this bumper section include Martin Amis exploring the sexual revolution of the 1960s , A.S. Byatt rewriting the Norse myths and the late Anthony Powell reflecting on his death. There are verse contributions from such distinguished contemporary poets as Seamus Heaney, Clive James and Andrew Motion. This doubles up as both a hilarious collection of literary lampoons and an alternative history of modern English literature.
Presents a collection of literary lampoons and an alternative history of modern English Literature.
