Description

pistache (pis-tash): a friendly spoof or parody of another’s work. [Deriv uncertain. Possibly a cross between pastiche and p**stake.] From Thomas Hardy’s football report to Dan Brown’s visit to the cash dispenser, the work of the great and the not-so-great is here sent up with little hope of coming down. Most of these pieces began their life on Radio Four’s The Write Stuff, but have been retooled for the printed page. Others, such as Martin Amis’s first day at Hogwarts, have been written specially for this collection. Philip Larkin’s Lines in Celebration of the Queen Mother’s 115th Birthday, first banned, then cut by the BBC, appears in its entirety for the first time. This is not a book for the faint-hearted or the downstairs lavatory. It is a book for the bedside table of someone you cannot live without.
