A charming man betrays friends in the name of celebrity. Love blooms by the cemetery gates. A sour rain falls on the new young Queen divine. Shoplifters of the world unite in order to tug a reluctant aardvark out of a hole. A sweet and tender hooligan swings a three-bar fire like it was a demolition ball. The middle classes rush and push to rid the world of chavs. The death of a Miami disco dancer inspires a new TV show. A naked birthday rendition of _Heaven Knows I_m Miserable Now_ is seen across the globe. Cranked up trannies tout their trade as long as there is light. This is what happens when you PAINT A VULGAR PICTURE.Contributors include: Mike Gayle, Kate Pullinger, Catherine O_Flynn, Helen Walsh, Mil Millington, Alison MacLeod, Matt Beaumont, Scarlett Thomas and Jeff Noon.
