'Britain's funniest writer' (Jon Ronson) makes some sense of the delusional fever-dream of recent times.

No other writer is more suited to chronicle the absurd and chaotic times we live in. This book—based on Hyde's spectacularly funny Guardian columns—tells the story of the hellscape of the Cameron, May and Johnson eras, Trumpian wtf-ery to celebrity twattery, the Royal soap-opera and the series finale of the United Kingdom. Hyde sees through the looking glass and calls out the utter crap rained down on us from populists, tech billionaires, reality TV monsters, media barons, sporting pundits and Gwyneth Paltrow.

What Just Happened?! will be a welcome blast of humour and sanity in the more-than-likely bleak winter of 2022.
