AM I MISSING SOMETHING...?: Unpublished Letters


AM I MISSING SOMETHING...?: Unpublished Letters

EDITED BY IAIN HOLLINGSHEAD    Book Number: 85542    Product format: Hardback

Guaranteed to lift the spirits instantly, this collection of rejected letters to the Telegraph editor, published in 2013, provides an alternative view of public events during that momentous year. Waiting for Prince George to arrive on the scene provokes an explosion of witticisms, among them "Never in the history of reporting have so few facts been stretched so far, for so long, by so many" and "If there is to be another six months of this stuff I shall be joining poor Kate in hospital with uncontrollable nausea." The death of Margaret Thatcher, as you would expect in the Telegraph, brought forth an angry response against those who were denigrating her memory, though compliments can be double edged: "Unlike Blair or Cameron, she could always be relied upon to stab you in the front." When Murray Mania seizes the country after Andy wins Wimbledon, one intrepid correspondent risks a joke to his wife: "Imagine the Telegraph headline if he fails a drugs test." Telegraph readers in their later years seem very preoccupied with sex, and one offers a tip for an enduring marriage "Agree with her when she's wrong and apologise when you're right." 205pp.
