About this product
- DescriptionSimon Hoggart has long been admired as one of our leading commentators on modern life. His memoirs encompass his radio career, most tably as chair of the News Quiz, his life as a journalist and as an observer of the people he has met along the way. A Long Lunch is both funny and quirky, whilst also being full of wisdom and insight. During his career, Simon has met every British prime minister from Harold Macmillan onwards. His memoirs will divulge what Alan Clark thought about Melvyn Bragg, what really happened at the Lady Chatterley trial, what Cherie Blair said to Simon and how he riposted, how John Sergeant drove an air stewardess to a raging fury and much more. From drunken episodes behind the scenes at the House of Commons to unexpected meetings in TV green rooms, Simon Hoggart both entertains and delights.
