The best of Keith Waterhouse in the Daily Mail

Keith Waterhouse's long-running column, which began appearing in the Daily Mail in 1986, won him numerous national press award. His characters Sharon and Tracy became a national institution, as did that venerable acadamy of English letters, the Association for the Annihilation of the Aberrant Apostrophe. The phlegmatic councillors of Clogthorpe and British Rail's brother-in-law Arnold are among the other regulars featured in this collection, which distils the wit and wisdom of a justly celebrated writer.

Praise for Sharon & Tracy & the Rest

  • Be warned: it may look like a book for dipping into, but once you've tasted it, you might find it hard to put down . . . the joy in having it is that when you've read one piece, you don't have to wait three days for another - Daily Mail

  • If a competition were held for the title of Fleet Street's best writer, a strong contender would be Keith Waterhouse - Spectator

  • He's the best there is at the pettiness of bureaucracy, the lame-headedness of government, the foolishness of the punditatorial classes. Best of all are the characters he's established over the years - The Times
