Product description

The third book in the bestselling and hilarious series of 'Am I Alone ...?' books From bin Laden to Pippa Middleton's bottom, and from riots to Rebekah Wade, Telegraph readers offer their maverick and hilarious take on the year's events, in the letters the paper didn't publish, because they were just too off-the-wall, too outrageous, or too waggish for an august Letters page. The first two volumes of unpublished letters to the Daily Telegraph, Am I Alone in Thinking? and I Could Go On ...have both been Christmas bestsellers, and sold well in excess of 100,000 copies. Once again, it will be an essential Christmas present to give or to receive. SIR - A question for your male readers: which would you rather be invited to - the Royal wedding, or one of Silvio Berlusconi's bunga bunga parties? SIR - All these years I have lived under the impression that Middleton Bottom was a rural west-country village. SIR - It is a pity Osama bin Laden was not taken alive. He could have been sentenced to go through airport security for the rest of his life. SIR - May I suggest that if the police are to use water cannon to disperse rioting students, they include some soap in the tank? SIR - Is a super-injunction the morning-after pill for celebrities?

Author information

Iain Hollingshead spent two years on the Letters to the Editor desk before becoming a full-time feature writer for The Daily Telegraph. His more serious assignments have included reporting on the student riots in London and interviewing everyone from Michael Atherton to Gurkha veterans to a member of Seal Team Six, the elite unit which killed Osama bin Laden. His less serious assignments have included taking a bath in Las Vegas with six albino rabbits, spending three days behind the scenes at the Miss England competition, camping outside Westminster Abbey for the Royal Wedding, eating in five Michelin starred restaurants in one day, learning to flirt in Pizza Express, learning to Dance in Mamma Mia!, performing stand-up comedy to 300 eight-year-olds, training with the Royal Marines, climbing into a Spitfire and experiencing a Brighton nudist beach first hand. He now writes freelance for the paper. He has edited four bestselling collections of unpublished letters from the Daily Telegraph for Aurum.

Review quote

'These unpublished missives are as whimsical, hilariously off-message and downright rude as one has come to expect from the Telegraph's discerning readers...an essential Christmas gift.' Lancashire Evening Post 'The ideal present for those who relish the querulous, quirky and quaint.' Oxford Times 'Extremely enjoyable reading...there is a great deal of subtle English wit' Good Book Guide
