Product description

Review

The nation could now, more than ever, do with the acute observation sof this engaging, vastly knowledgeable, self-deprecating, untidy, poetic, slightly boozy figure, full of laughter and melancholy

(The Daily Telegraph)

‘[recalls] a vanished age of prose civility.’

(Steven Poole Guardian, The Best Stocking-filler Books, Christmas 2012)
