Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Click for video of Dear Editor on Stateline, CanberraTo newspaper correspondents, he is living in the past; an arrogant toff who needs a drink poured over his head. To some editors, who dont have time for his exploits, he is too opinionated or divisive, while others dont know what to make of it. He is a man of letters, of pedigree, of unimpeachable integrity, of ideas. No issue is beyond his octopus-like intellectual grasp, be it global warming, teenage sex, nut allergies, pole dancing, corporal punishment, the perils of pestoOscar Brittle is the creation of Glenn Fowler, Christopher Smyth and Gareth Malone. In an eighteen month campaign to wrest control of the debates in the nations newspapers and magazines from the wishy-washies and the weaklings, Oscar Brittle became (arguably) the most significant and powerful contributor to public debate in contemporary Australia. This book is a collection of published letters and their originals, published replies from various correspondents, email exchanges between Oscar and editors, as well as the rejected letters, all interspersed with gorgeous illustrations throughout.This is a book that is not easily forgotten. Once youve read Brittle, you will never read letters pages in the same way again. The authors are still be pinching themselves that the whole ruse came off. It couldnt be funnier.A brilliant idea and hilariously pulled off. Chris Taylor, The ChaserThe funniest idea since the scrum. Brittle deserves his own show. Roy Slaven, This Sporting LifeTheres always a place in my heart for the true anarchist. Sydney has long needed an absurdist voice and Brittle is it! Grahame Bond, TVs iconic Aunty JackI absolutely refuse to endorse this brilliant book. Phillip Adams. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: During an 18-month campaign to wrest control of opinion pages in Australia's newspapers and magazines, Oscar Brittle became one of the the most talked-about pundits in the country. Trouble was, Mr. Brittle didn't exist—he was a hoax perpetrated by three young Aussie comedians. This collection sheds light on the shenanigans by bringing together all the published letters ascribed to Brittle—from those dealing with global warming and corporal punishment to teenage sex and nut allergies—along with responses from his readers. New material includes email exchanges between Brittle and his confused editors and a bunch of hilarious letters from the public that never appeared in print. Attractive illustrations throughout add to the fun.

Über den Autor: Oscar Brittle is a pseudonym for a trio of Australian humorists: Glenn Fowler, Gareth Malone, and Christopher Smyth.
