Description - Charlie Brooker's Screen Burn by Charlie Brooker

'These days, watching television is like sitting in the back of Travis Bickle's taxicab, staring through the window at a world of relentless, churning shod...' Cruel, acerbic, impassioned, gleeful, frequently outrageous and always hilarious, Charlie Brooker's Screen Burn collects the best of the much-loved Guardian Guide columns into one easy-to-read-on-the-toilet package. Sit back and roar as Brooker rips mercilessly into Simon Cowell, 'Big Brother', Trinny and Susannah, 'Casualty', Davina McCall, Michael Parkinson...and almost everything else on television. This book will make practically anyone laugh out loud. At the turn of the millennium, Charlie Brooker created the notorious website TV Go Home. More recently, he co-wrote Channel Four's Nathan Barley with Chris Morris. Prior to become the Guardian Guide's TV critic, Brooker worked as a cartoonist, a journalist, and a TV and radio presenter. "Charlie Brooker doesn't so much go for the jugular as decapitate his targets altogether." (Jim Shelley, Daily Mirror). "He watches these things so we don't have to. Bless him for that." (Graham). "Father Ted." (Linehan). "This belongs on everyone's bookshelf. With a big spotlight pointing at it." (Julie Burchill). "The funniest newspaper columnist in the world." (Racing Post).
