About the Author:

Craig Brown has been writing the Private Eye celebrity diary since 1989. He has also written parodies for many other publications, including The Daily Telegraph, Vanity Fair, The Times and The Guardian. He is the author of several books, most recently `The Lost Diaries' and `One on One'.

Review:

Praise for `One on One':`These wonderfully gossipy but penetratingly truthful accounts don't always show human nature at its best or most compassionate. But those who find gossip not only highly entertaining but also highly revealing about the most complex thing we know of in nature- ourselves- will relish One On One form the first chapter to the 101st' Sunday Times`For those who know Brown as a parodist, this book will come as a surprise. Though often very funny, it's a work of straight non-fiction whose great virtue is not excess but restraint... A hugely enjoyable book that looks with affection and melancholy on the whirring roundabouts of history and celebrity, and reminds us that the paths to glory lead, handshake by handshake, pratfall by pratfall, to the grave' Sam Leith, GUARDIAN`The book describes real encounters. Truth being stranger than fiction, many of them are every bit as bizarre as Brown could have invented, and some are as funny... This is much more than a comedy book' SPECTATOR`It is partly a huge karmic parlour game, partly a dance to the music of chaos - and only the genius of Craig Brown could have produced it' EVENING STANDARD`Marvelously inventive and witty ... it's hard to imagine anyone who could do it better. He has an acutely attuned comic ear, an unmatched eye for spotting the absurdities of human behaviour and a bloodhound-grade nose for sniffing out phoniness and pretension. You couldn't wish for a finer exponent of this literary parlour game' MAIL ON SUNDAY
