Product description


Praise for Boris Johnson and Friends, Voters, Countrymen:

‘Johnson has cracked the art of making politics invigorating.’Daily Telegraph

‘Such an entertaining read.’ Daily Mail

‘It is very funny and has, in short, all the idiosyncracies of its author.’ Jeremy Paxman

From the Inside Flap

Boris Johnson wrote of his early steps as a politician in his first book, Friends, Voters,Countrymen. Now he turns to his other life. Lend Me Your Ears is a collection of the essentail Boris Johnson, the best of his journalism, with additional new writing.
Selecting from the articles he has written over the last years, Boris Johnson takes the reader on a journey from his humble beginnings of a 'heroically unproductive hack' on The Times, through his time as European correspondent for The Daily Telegraph, to his present occupation as the editor of The Spectator and regular columnist and contributor to many other newspapers and magazines.
The fifteen year period has seen amazing changes, both politically and culturally, both at home and abroad. Boris Johnson was there at many key moments: he saw, commented and critized.
In his own inimitable style, Boris Johnson shows the reader the changes in domestic politics from Thatcher's fall to Mandelson's two resignations, from the time of Diana to the issues of liberty verses freedom. In foreign affairs he explores countries as diverse as Zimbabwe and Yugoslavia, and he provides an insight into the many personalities he has meet from Frank Bruno to President Bush. And above and beyond politics, he turns his attention to British society, its culture, its manners, its morals and its idiosyncracies.
Whether persuading the Danes to reject the Maastricht treaty, dancing with Ulrika Jonsson, trying to erect a climbing frame, reporting from the war-torn Balkans, Boris Johnson illuminates the last fifteen years and his new contributions set the whole period in focus. At time humourous, at other time furious, but always insightful, Lend Me Your Ears is lively, stimulating and a pleasure to read. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
