Spectacles by Sue PerkinsWhen I began writing this book, I went home to see if my mum had kept some of my stuff. What I found was that she hadnt kept some of it. She had kept all of it - every bus ticket, postcard, school report - from the moment I was born to the moment I finally had the confidence to turn round and say Why is our house full of this shit?
Sadly, a recycling incident destroyed the bulk of this archive. This has meant two things: firstly, Dear Reader, you will never get to see countless drawings of wizards, read a poem about corn on the cob, or marvel at the kilos of brown flowers I so lovingly pressed as a child. Secondly, its left me with no choice but to actually write this thing myself.
This, my first ever book, will answer questions such as Is Mary Berry real?, Is it true you wear a surgical truss? and Is a non-spherically symmetric gravitational pull from outside the observable universe responsible for some of the observed motion of large objects such as galactic clusters in the universe?
Most of this book is true. I have, of course, amplified my more positive characteristics in an effort to make you like me.
Thank you for reading.

It was bound to happen. Having eaten their way through times past and milked goats together, it was inevitable that sooner or later Giles Coren and Sue Perkins would get married. In a typically amiable programme combining history with banter and slapstick, they assume the roles of the modern prince and his bride-to-be, discussing all the details of their wedding from the dress to the precise wording of their wedding vows. They draw on inspiration from the past, beginning with wedding expert Henry VIII and ending with that lascivious old rake, Dirty Bertie.
