Denise Thatcher’s book of letters and poems is reminiscent of her contemporary inquisitor of public figures, Ali G. (Sacha Baron Cohen) whose hilarious interviews elicited varying reactions from his victims. As with Ali G, Thatcher’s victims, with a few notable exceptions, were at a loss as to how to respond adding to the humour and absurdity of the communication. Unlike Ali, Denise added well versed poems to round off her point of view and nail her victims. I particularly like the Guinness reply and found myself wondering if she might have elicited the same reaction from Aston Martin. Worth a shot. I think there is a video dimension yet to add to this excellent publication and look forward to Denise gracing our plasma screens in the near future.
