Synopsis:
Jonathan Meades' shows are unlike anyone else's. They belong to a genre of their own. They are heavy entertainment. They combine topographical analysis with performance art, high seriousness with low comedy, visual trickery with hymns to the overlooked, polemical argument with scathing wit. They take you to places you'll never have been before - most of them located in the byways of Meade's imagination. They show you how to world seems to him and they may even persuade you to look again...
This collection includes eleven of his best and an interview with Mark Lawson in which he talks about his working methods, the relationship of his television shows to his fiction and his journalism, censorship, maximalism, gastronomy, etc.

High brow sillyness - Jonathan Meades Collection review by JD

Spoiler Alert
11/04/2013

It must be said that Jonathan Meades features heavily in these art essays. He is never out of shot. His narrative is very wordy and often for its own sake. Words like parodic and polemic you might find in a Will Self novel in the same concentration. Phrases are usually a repeat of the previous with a different unusual word. The essays were quite interesting and I like the unusual style but he is just showing off most of the time and it became a bit wearing.
