Armando Iannucci - The Audacity of Hype (2nd Hand Paperback)
Armando Iannucci cuts straight to the heart of the insanity and sherbet-headed nonsense of modern life.
The Audacity of Hype brings together his views on diverse subjects, ranging from wickedly funny pen portraits of the sometimes lovable, usually despicable chumps who like to think of themselves as our political elite, and their bonkers schemes to save the world that are in fact likely to do us more harm than a pile of witches.
Then there's WMD, disaster movies, the pitfalls of 'I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here' and the high and mighty rhetoric of Obama . . . this is an absurdly entertaining and utterly indispensable collection from one of Britain's most brilliant satirists.
