Following his hugely popular account of the previous 2000 years, John O?Farrell now comes bang up to date with a hilarious modern history asking ?How the hell did we end up here?? nnAn Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain informs, elucidates and laughs at all the bizarre events, ridiculous characters and stupid decisions that have shaped Britain?s story since 1945; leaving the Twenty-First Century reader feeling fantastically smug for having the benefit of hindsight. About the Author John O?Farrell studied history at Desborough Comprehensive, where he got a B in his O level. He later continued his research by watching lots of programmes about the Nazis on the UK History Channel. Apart from that he has published three novels, a memoir and three collections of his popular Guardian column. A former comedy scriptwriter for such shows as Spitting Image and Smith and Jones, he is the founder of the satirical website NewsBiscuit and can occasionally be spotted on such TV programmes as Grumpy Old Men, Newsnight Review and Have I Got News For You.
