About the Author

John Peyton knew Solly Zuckerman well and his own autobiography, "Without the Benefit of Laundry," was published to great acclaim in 1997.

He was also Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Power (1962-4), Minister of Transport (1970-4) and Shadow Leader of the House of Commons (1974-7). He lives in London and Somerset.
