That's the best we can do.­'In his latest laugh-­out-­loud collection of misanthropic scribblings, hideous Q-­list celebrity failure Charlie Brooker tackles everything from the misery of nightclubs to the death of Michael Jackson, making room for Sir Alan Sugar, potato crisps, global financial meltdown, conspiracy theories and Hole in the Wall along the way.
