New in the best-selling series of Unpublished Letters, this is a year in review made up of the wry and astute observations of the unpublished Telegraph letter writers. In a year in which even the most seasoned commentators have struggled to keep pace with the news cycle, letter writers to The Daily Telegraph have once again provided their refreshing take on events. Readers of the Telegraph Letters Page will be fondly aware of the eclectic combination of learned wisdom, wistful nostalgia and robust good sense that characterise its correspondence. But what of the 95% of the paper’s huge postbag that never sees the light of day? Some of the best letters inevitably arrive too late for the 24/7 news cycle, or don’t quite fit with the rest of the day’s selection. Others are just a little too whimsical, or indeed too risque, to publish in a serious newspaper. And more than a few are completely and utterly (and wonderfully) mad. Thankfully Iain Hollingshead is on-hand to give the authors of the best unpublished letters the stage they so richly deserve. Baffled, furious, defiant, mischievous, they inveigh and speculate on every subject under the sun, from the rubbish on television these days to the venality of our MPs. With an agenda as enticing as ever the ninth book in the bestselling Unpublished Letters series will prove, once again, that the Telegraph’s readers have an astute sense of what really matters.

DIV Readers of the 'brilliant Telegraph Letters page', as Ian Hislop recently lauded it, will be fondly aware of the eclectic combination of learned wisdom, wistful nostalgia and robust good sense that characterise its correspondence. But what of the 95 per cent of the paper's huge postbag which never sees the light of day? Some of the best letters inevitably arrive too late for the 24/7 news cycle, or don't quite fit with the rest of the day's selection. Others are just a little too whimsical, or indeed too risque, to publish in a serious newspaper. And more than a few are completely and utterly (and wonderfully) mad, such as the missives you'll find within these pages from someone who signs himself merely as "M", and believes himself to be the head of MI6. Now, the Telegraph gives the authors of these unpublished letters the stage at last. Baffled, furious, defiant, mischievous, they inveigh and speculate on every subject under the sun, from the rubbish on television these days to the venality of our MPs, from Kate Winslet's decolletage to this country's unhealthy obsession with marmalade. All those Telegraph readers who wondered if anyone else had noticed that the lunatics had finally taken over the asylum and sat down to write to their favourite newspaper to test the waters - they need howl into the void no longer. They are not alone. /div

Readers of the Daily Telegraph will be fondly aware of the combination of wistful nostalgia, robust no-nonsense good sense and appalled outrage that characterises its “brilliant†? (Ian Hislop) Letters page, which if it did not exist would have to be invented. But what of all the letters that were just slightly too wacky, too off the wall, too politically incorrect, to make it for publication? Now the Telegraph gives their authors the stage at last: baffled, furious, occasionally paranoid, and from this hilarious selection of the best we can see that no, none them is alone…

DIV The essential humour gift book of the year returns in the anticipated fourth volume of this bestselling series Ð guaranteed to provoke laughter and amazement. The first volume of unpublished letters to the Daily Telegraph, Am I Alone in ThinkingÉ?, not only became a Christmas bestseller but also established the paperÕs letter-writers as a uniquely waggish, eccentric and maverick institution. They can be relied upon,particularly in the letters slightly too pungent or off-the wall to print, to offer a new and memorable take on the great events of the day. Now, with the fourth book in the series, Iain Hollingshead collects together our favourite letterwriters on everything from this summerÕs Olympics to the QueenÕs Diamond Jubilee, as well as the rather more obscure concerns voiced by ÔMÕ, the habitual correspondent who believes himself to be the head of MI5 but writes from an internet cafŽ in Bristol. Trenchant, choleric and hilariously funny, this will once again be the humour book of the year. /div

DIV What else will the Telegraph’s indefatigable, outraged, and above all very funny letter-writers fail to get the Letters Page to take seriously in 2010 – with the result that we have to collect their memorable missives in another book? Already there are enough fulminations on Chris Evans replacing Terry Wogan to fill an entire chapter. Gordon Brown’s temper? Bankers’ bonuses? E-books? The state of Ashley and Cheryl Cole’s marriage? One thing is for sure: the result will be the only review of the year you really need, a book to make Victor Meldrew look as pure as driven snow, and a handsome little volume to sell once again in its tens of thousands. /div

DIVEvery year, the collection of the best letters that didn’t quite make it into the Telegraph – because just too left-field, outrageous or hilarious for an august Letters page – offers an alternative review of the year. For this fifth volume the potential agenda is just as enticing as ever, with Telegraph readers variously waggish, whimsical or just plain steamed-up about Chris Huhne’s speeding points, a new Pope, the Royal baby and mansion taxes. Once again, it will be one of the humour bestsellers of the year. /div

DIV The third book in the bestselling and hilarious series of ‘Am I Alone . . . ?’ books From bin Laden to Pippa Middleton’s bottom, and from riots to Rebekah Wade, Telegraph readers offer their maverick and hilarious take on the year’s events, in the letters the paper didn’t publish, because they were just too off-the-wall, too outrageous, or too waggish for an august Letters page. The first two volumes of unpublished letters to the Daily Telegraph, Am I Alone in Thinking? and I Could Go On . . . have both been Christmas bestsellers, and sold well in excess of 100,000 copies. Once again, it will be an essential Christmas present to give or to receive. SIR - A question for your male readers: which would you rather be invited to – the Royal wedding, or one of Silvio Berlusconi’s bunga bunga parties? SIR - All these years I have lived under the impression that Middleton Bottom was a rural west-country village. SIR - It is a pity Osama bin Laden was not taken alive. He could have been sentenced to go through airport security for the rest of his life. SIR - May I suggest that if the police are to use water cannon to disperse rioting students, they include some soap in the tank? SIR - Is a super-injunction the morning-after pill for celebrities? /div

DIV Whether it’s leaves on the line or the wrong kind of snow, whether the extortionately priced, curled-up sandwich on sale in the buffet car, or the militancy of the rail unions that seem to be endlessly on strike over nothing, everyone in Britain has an opinion about our railways. After the weather, they are probably the country’s most reliable talking point. With Telegraph readers being the trenchant, choleric and waggish letter-writers that they are, our railways have always figured high on the list of subjects requiring a missive to the Editor. Now, in this fascinating and hilarious selection, Gavin Fuller has put together the best letters on trains to the paper over the years. Here is the end of Steam and the start of Eurostar; the punctuality of Swiss trains and the signal failures of ours; the laments for the branch lines lost under the Beeching cuts, and also for the much-missed peace and quiet of a railway carriage, replaced by the menace of personal stereos and fellow passengers booming, ‘I’m On The Train!’ into their mobile phones. /div

DIV The Telegraph newspapers maintain their high standards of accuracy, literacy and grammar thanks to a comprehensive style book used by all their journalists, covering everything from the correct title of a baron to the spelling of Gorden Kaye’s Christian name when writing about Allo, Allo. But its rigour and exactitude are complemented by a deliciously baleful, even testy, wit – a quality much valued by, and indeed demonstrated by, its own readership in Aurum’s hugely successful Unpublished Letters book of Christmas 2009, Am I Alone in Thinking…? As a result this style guide is a uniquely enjoyable and frequently very funny read in itself. Now Aurum publishes a trade edition, as a handsome little hardback volume, decorated with a cover cartoon by Matt. It will be an essential addition to the bookshelf of anyone who has to write for public consumption, but will also make an ideal gift. /div

'Dear Mr. Adam, I am writing on behalf of the Central Watch and Social Problems Committee of the Mothers’ Union to ask whether you have a programme in mind on the moral issue of venereal disease.' 'Sir, Where are the B.B.C’s censors? We do not care for the language that was inflicted on us Tuesday night in “The Battle of Britain”. Don’t retort, ‘You need not listen if you don’t want to’. We did not know it was coming.' 'Dear Mr. Frost, Let me start by saying how much I enjoy your programme & that I was among those many who felt almost that they had lost a blowsy old friend when dear & vulgar, but nonetheless thought-provoking and funny TW3 went off the air.' For anyone who regularly feels tempted to put pen to paper, I’m Sure I Speak For Many Others is an alternative history of the BBC, from its triumphant broadcast of the coronation in 1953, to that Tynan moment, the controversial That Was The Week That Was, and the groundbreaking Grange Hill. Stretching across over forty years of programming, these never before seen letters represent the joy, the fury and the wit of the nation.

Telegraph letter writers, that most astute body of political commentators, are probably not alone in thinking that politics has taken some strange turns in recent years. The first coalition government since 1945 has led the country from the subprime to the ridiculous, lumbering from Leveson to Libya, riots to referendums, pasty-gate to pleb-gate, Brooks to Bercow, the Bullingdon Club to the Big Society. Five years is a long time in politics. Fortunately for us, it has also been a most fertile period for the Telegraph's legion of witty and erudite letter writers, who have their own therapeutic way of dealing with the pain. An institution in their own right, theirs is a welcome voice of sanity in a world in which the lunatics appear finally to have taken over the asylum.
