Anyone else read this? I'm half way through and the words 'pompous w*nk' are elbowing their way to the front of my brain. Sketchy on the detail (frankly I learnt more from Matt Rendell's Blazing Saddles) absurdly over-written and if I come across one more untranslated French quote I'll not be held accountable. Oh and if the self-satisfied tit drops just one more obscure reference to a French film/book/musical that I've never read, I shall scream. I feel better for having got that off my chest.
