    Craig Brown is a genius of mimesis, able to ape the literary styles of anyone from John Prescott to Virginia Woolf. This boundlessly entertaining selection of 'lost diary' entries from the great and the good includes Nicholas Haslam's reflections on 'commonness', Woodrow Wyatt's worries about how much to tip the Queen and Martin Amis's conviction that 'death is the snare in God's drumset'.
