It Must be True: Classic Newspaper Howlers by Denys Parsons
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Denys Parsons was the undisputed king of the misprint and over the years he compiled many best-selling volumes. It Must Be True brings together the very best of these timeless clangers dredged from the daily press across the English-speaking universe from the Berkhamsted Gazette to the Bulawayo Chronicle. Including both bizarre accidents of typesetting and delightful editorial bungles, most of the mishaps bring a hilarious unintentional new meaning, while others allow an inspired breed of nonsense to reign for a brief but glorious moment.

Author Biography

Denys Parsons was the grandson of actor-manager Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree. He originally worked in the field of scientific research and invention. He then became a film-maker and finally ended up as the Press Officer for the British Library.
