Join Craig Brown, 'our greatest living satirist', as he lifts the lid on the dark art of biography and parody

Craig Brown’s extensive writing career has embraced everything from parody, literary criticism and pen portraits, to verse, anagrams, social observation and biography. Described by The Sunday Times as ‘our greatest living satirist’, Brown’s wit takes no prisoners. From Her Majesty the Queen to baking legend Mary Berry and politician Jacob Rees-Mogg, no one is safe.

In a lively conversation with broadcaster and critic Miranda Sawyer, Brown will be lifting the lid on the dark art of biography and looking back on some of his most enjoyable, challenging and rewarding writing experiences.
