Journalists Anna Pasternak and Marius Brill took Fielding’s Jones (Bridget not Tom) model into the 21st century, but in opposite directions. One laughed with her, the other at her. Pasternak’s Daisy Dooley Does Divorce was described as “frequently hilarious and sharply, wittily written” by the Daily Mail. Brill’s Making Love, a Conspiracy of the Heart inspired this warning from Time Out: “Women who snort when they laugh and men prone to getting erections in public should read this at home.” Now the two authors go head to head to defend their comic visions and give insights into what makes us laugh.
