ID: 4696831

You'll know them all: the armchair spectators supporting the plucky little Brit at Wimbledon; the Atkins dieter, with her mantra of 'Can I eat this?'; the white van man who cannot see the KEEP CLEAR sign because he has parked on top of it; the toddler whose favourite playthings are wall sockets and cats' tails. And of course the perfect family, whose children are all stars and so positive, even in a cyclone on holiday in Mauritius. Skewering affectation and exposing human folly, Victoria Mather and Sue Macartney-Snape are back with a hilarious set of Social Stereotypes in which we'll recognize everyone around us, including ourselves. essays,history,humor,humor and entertainment,world Humor & Entertainment, John Murray Publishers

Details of the book
The Perfect Family: Social Stereotypes from the Telegraph Magazine

From the Atkins Dieter to the White Van Man, a whole host of social stereotypes are exposed in this hilarious new collection. The perfectly observed pen-and-word sketches send up modern manners and maddening mannerisms. Their weekly column in the "Telegraph" magazine is a firm favourite with readers. "Victoria Mather & Sue Macartney-Snape are not so much observers, more collectors, pinning their victims like butterflies in a display cabinet" Michael Parkinson
