About this product
- DescriptionMichael Parkinson has described Victoria Mather and Sue Macartney-Snape as 't so much observers, more collectors, pinning their victims like butterflies in a display cabinet. Their observations are made with the wit and humour necessary to survive the circles they move in.' True to form, The Appalling Guests offers the chance to delight in yet ather array of social stereotypes, from supermodel Tweetie's baby shower (the editor of Vogue has bought a leather nappy bag with organic nappy rash unguents wrapped in silver cellophane and sequins) to the Chalfont St Oswald amateur dramatics society staging of Little Red Riding Hood with leading light Pam, who has written it, directed it, designed the costumes and given herself the leading role. You'll recognise them all -- the back seat driver, the beautiful boy at the gym, the merchant banker, the Archers addict and the competitive mother. And thanks to The Appalling Guests, you'll kw how to avoid them.
- Author BiographyVictoria Mather and Sue Macartney-Snape are the universally acclaimed duo who, over the past nine years, have created more than 500 social stereotypes. Their weekly column, with its unerring eye for human follies and foibles, is simply a must.
