Tony Benn with more laughs (not that Benn was humourless)
on 6 June 2017
Highly recommended. I'm older than Mark and lived through a lot of what he talks about. When I was an actor, I also met a fair few members of the SWP. The book is hilarious as well as being an illuminating record of non-mainstream politics during the last thirty years.
My abiding memory of reading this is of laughing out loud on almost every page. I'm sorry (for his sake) that the book also charts the disintegration of his relationship with his partner.
I love his Radio 4 series (Lectures on Great Minds, and also particular towns - can't remember the actual titles). I'm full of admiration for the guy and wish him very well.
