Product description


The inspiring memoirs of a leading politician is also the autobiography of a splendid Englishman, liked and respected across the political spectrum. Denis Healey was born in 1917, a year of revolution, and grew up in Yorkshire. At Oxford he began to test and expand his political views. After a distinguished war career, he travelled throughout a shattered Europe until he became an MP for Leeds in 1952. He rose to the highest political ranks, becoming Defence Secretary, Chancellor and a major player in the Labour government, standing for the party leadership in 1979. The autobiography is also about Denis Healey the man, who has witnessed the great changes that have taken place in Britain since the war. His wide-ranging intelligence brilliantly counterpoints the pace of change, and illuminates his love of literature, art, music and photography. This is the memoir of a man in the round: a great politician, speaker, writer and above all friend and family man - a book which will inspire all who read it with the wit, warmth and wisdom of Denis Healey.

About the Author

Dennis Healey was a leading politician and held the major cabinet posts of Defence Secretary and Chancellor of the Exchequer. He is the author of Healey's Eye, a charming record of his photographic career, My Secret Planet, a linked anthology of his favourite books and poems and When Shrimps Learn to Whistle, a collection of his writings and speeches. In 1945 he married Edna, a distinguished writer in her own right.
