From the cover: “‘In Britain’, writes Philip Norman, ‘little remains that does not wear the cosmetic disguise of something else, considered happier, more desirable or glamorous.’ He sums up the Nineteen-Eighties as the Age of Parody, in which bogusness and self-delusion became the keynote of British life. This is a selection of the best of Philip Norman’s highly individual and irreverent journalism from the Eighties, filed from both England and America.”
