Product description

Review

"Where would the popes, presidents and princesses of the world be without Paul Johnson, the former editor of the New Statesman and much loved columnist in this and other periodicals? As his latest book shows, he is an all but indispensible asset, a social equivalent of the Admirable Crichton." (A.N. Wilson Spectator)

"It all makes compulsive reading. For Johnson has not only a retentive memory - total recall, in fact - and a lively imagination, but also a great raconteur's gift for witty dialogue, rivalling that of Oscar Wilde . . . Any historian of the last half of the 20th century - especially if he has if he has a taste for the comedie humaine - should read this book, if only to learn more about its author, the Thomas Carlyle of our age, who has played a life-enhancing part in history." (New Statesman)

"Johnson's enthusiasm and industry are, as usual, prodigious" (Sunday Times)

Book Description

A unique and entertaining insight into the last 50 years of our history through its most famous faces, by a man who knew everyone
