Product description

Review

‘[Paxman] records his childhood and the highs and lows of his subsequent career with a sharp eye, an acerbic wit and a lingering trace of melancholy.’ Daily Mail

‘Funny, sad and revealing’ David Aaronovitch, The Times

‘Entertaining’, Books of the Year, Observer

‘[A] trenchant memoir’ Daily Mail

‘Eye-opening … [an] entertaining and anecdote-rich book’ Daily Express

‘Revealing memoir’ Observer

‘Gripping’ Literary Review

Praise for Jeremy Paxman:

‘Intelligent, well-written, informative and funny … A book to chew on, dip into, quote from and exploit in arguments’ Andrew Marr, Observer

‘He writes with wit and penetration, and every page of Empire can be read with relaxed pleasure’ Spectator

‘Paxman is witty, incisive, acerbic and opinionated . . . In short, he carries the whole thing off with panache bordering on effrontery’ Sunday Times

‘A very engaging account … with a good sprinkling of jokes, funny nicknames and sexual references. Paxman makes some very sharp points and writes well’ Guardian

‘Bursting with good things’ Daily Telegraph

About the Author

Jeremy Paxman was born in 1950 and studied English Literature at Cambridge. Unable to get another job, he became a BBC reporter and then a studio presenter. Over a quarter-century on Newsnight, he revolutionised the cosy relationship between interviewer and politician and, more than any other interviewer, took the side of the viewer against the guest. He is also quiz master on University Challenge, has written and presented television series such as Empire, The Victorians, Great Britain’s Great War and is the author of numerous articles for many publications . He has also written many books including the best-selling The English, On Royalty and Friends in High Places. In his spare time, he enjoys fly-fishing.
