Poison Pen Takes Aim

This appeared in the Mail Online back in July - but I thought it would interest readers still.

Mrs Angry! Grande dame of the poision pen Julie Burchill takes aim at modern life
"From self-obsessed celebrities to cynical beauty companies, she's got an opinion on everything - and none of them flattering. In a waspish new book, Julie Burchill lets rip at modern life

Beauty manufacturers who ruthlessly target women's self-esteem. Ugly older men who think they're God's gift to women. And celebrities who say they long for privacy - but are happy to sell their stories to gossip magazines. In a witty and coruscating new book, Not In My Name, Britain's grande dame of the poison pen, Julie Burchill, lets rip at what she regards as the biggest hypocrites of the modern age. Take cover!"
