Read full description of the books:



This book collects together strips by Posy originally published in The Guardian during the 80s. People who don't like The Guardian say it's read by a bunch of left-wing liberal types whose minds consist of a half-digested mush of PC clich├ęs. But you can't accuse the newspaper's editors of lacking a sense of humour. George Weber, the main character in the strip, is a marvellous parody of the stereotyped Guardian reader: lecturer in sociology at the local polytechnic, he's writing a huge treatise on semiotics that will obviously never be published or even completed, while his long-suffering wife Wendy, a part-time illustrator of childrens books, keeps the household together and looks after their six kids. Irrespective of whether your politics are left or right, if you're at all familiar with the British middle classes you're going to giggle every few pages.

I'm having trouble thinking which episode I liked best, but maybe the one where George has booked himself in for a long-overdue vasectomy. We get to see his painful dreams, starting with an episode from the Crimean war. Phallic cannon thunder in the background, and Wendy turns up as Florence Nightingale. (Wounded soldier: "Is that the lady with the lamp?" George: "That was no lady, that was my wife!") The scene then switches to a confrontation with George's boss, who's making changes to the curriculum. ("NO!! You're not going to cut BOTH of them, are you? My research AND my teaching?") Suddenly, he wakes up shaking his head and wearing a disapproving frown.

"This is MUCH too Freudian!"
