Heinemann, 1994, Hardback in dust wrapper.
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;
From the flap: Arthur Daley, national institution, super patriot and Olympic gold medallist in Ducking and Diving, takes a long, hard look at the state of the nation and asks: What is Occurring? Her Majesty the Queen forced to open up the hallowed portals of Buck House and become a Pentax-dodger; Her Majesty Mrs Thatcher roaming the seas singing for her supper, while the fate of the country is left in the hands of a Nerd-Do-Well and a Chancellor who smokes cigarillos; and even Her Holiness Lady Porter treated like some common shoplifter at Tesco! Fortunately Arthur is on hand. His brief, if youll pardon the expression? To hold out a beacon of light to hapless Brits lost in a mailroom of uncertainty, and to lead them back to the level playing field on top of the high moral ground. To bring the country back to basics on such burning topics as the Monarchy, Sport, Education, the Citizens Charter (the Arthur-ised Version), Europe, the Arts and the vexed question of Sunday Trading. In a dry roast nutshell, Daleys Anatomy is a complete company report on Great Britain plc that makes the Doomsday Book look like a takeaway menu from the Fulham Golden Palace.
