by Theodore Dalrymple
A Fortified British Whine
(from the satirical pen of Britains
of the national malaise).
"The world has a lot to thank murderers for, when you come to think of it."
Thus, Graham Underwood, writing his apologia in jail for the serial murder of fifteen (or is it twenty-two?) unremarkable people he believes he has performed a public service in eliminating.
"Not," he goes on, "that I expect gratitude ."

"This engaging and mischievous book is a masterly pastiche of polemic, containing the wit and subversion of Voltaire with the teasing paradox of Swift. We are not meant to take seriously the killers justification that he was ridding the world of spongers, but that he should be able to make such a claim with a straight face is a serious insight."
