If I wasn't such a loudmouth, I'd be an enigma.
Each week in the pages of the Age, Catherine Deveny tackles the big issues of modern life with hilarity and passion and in her own inimitable style. From 4WD owners to Nick Giannopolous to women who take their husband's name, Deveny isn't backward in coming forward.
It's Not My Fault They Print Them collects Deveny's funniest, most biting work, published and unpublishable (till now). Bound to spark heated debate and riotous laughter, it includes her views on elective caesareans, private education, McLeod's Daughters, Sam Newman and much, much more.
Prepare to be tickled, cajoled, outraged, baited and amused.
