The work pistache (pis-tash) means a friendly spoof or parody of ather's work. [Derivation uncertain, possibly a cross between pastiche and p**stake.] From Thomas Hardy's football report to Dan Brown's visit to the cash dispenser, the work of the great and the t-so-great is here sent up with little hope of coming down. Most of these pieces began their life on Radio Four's The Write Stuff , but have been retooled for the printed page. Others, such as Martin Amis' First day at Hogwarts , have been written specially for this collection. Philip Larkin's Lines in Celebration of the Queen Mother's 115th Birthday , first banned, then cut by the BBC, appears in its entirety for the first time. This is t a book for the faint-hearted or the downstairs lavatory. It is a book for the bedside table of someone you cant live without.
