Thousands of letters to the Daily Mail go unpublished every week. This title includes some of 'the best of the rest' such as pithy notes from grammar pedants, serious contributions to debates of the day and hilarious misunderstandings, observations and experiences. Some were too oddball, some too polemical, obscure, outrageous or whimsical for initial publication, but all are remarkable for their unique insights into the way we live now...

Synopsis

I've Said It Before... Unpublished Letters to the Daily Mail by Andrew Simpson

'I read that a woman has left her husband and children to go and live with a Red Indian she met on the internet. Could it be said that her marriage was going through a bad Apache?'. Corresponding on themes as diverse as Australian tree frogs, the legalisation of cannabis and Camilla Parker-Bowles, the letters of these Daily Mail readers chronicle life in an unmistakeably British way.
