I advise those curmudgeons with a social conscience to put aside Lord McAlpine's former political life when reading this excellent collection of anecdotes - I did and was rewarded. If you enjoy collecting stuff, travelling the world, fine dining, fine art and simply being a fusty curmudgeon abroad then you are advised to pick up a copy of this book. It's ideal to dip into, although I read it cover to cover. Worthwhile even if you already have the original articles as they appeared in World of Interiors. Mighty fine stuff.
