FAKING IT charts the march of the fraudulent in modern society, from government policies more concerned with spin than substance through to the extraordinary over-the-top reactions to the death of Princess Diana. The book caused a furore when published in hardcover by suggesting the reactions were sentimental and juvenile. There are twelve different essays by different hands on subjects like modern music, religion and the sentimentalization of children. "A completely brilliant book... extraordinarily interesting" Fay Weldon, BBC's Book Talk "Profoundly true" Melanie Philips, Observer "(Antony O'Hear on Diana) has come dangerously close to the truth" Francis Wheen, Guardian
