Literary Life Revisited

£18.99

The key to Posy Simmonds and her satire is her ability to capture in a few brush or pen strokes, the incurable manners of the English middle-class and their attitudes towards all things literary. More than a cartoonist, Posy is an artist in her own right.

Description

First published in 2003, Literary Life became an instant classic as readers (and writers) delighted in watching Posy Simmonds skewer the pains and pretensions of the writer’s (and reader’s) calling with her inimitable flair for witty satire and sharp social observation. As well as all the cartoons and comic strips from the original edition, The Complete Literary Life includes 40 extra pages of cartoons, including the two series Rick Raker and Dr Derek, in which two very different heroes attempt to right the wrongs afflicting the writing world, one by brute force and skulduggery, the other with a silky bedside manner.
