Acquired via BookCrossing 28 Feb 2009 – at the Birmingham BookCrossers’ meetup

Read and enjoyed.  A life in journalism and politics and perhaps a different angle to the one I would normally see or seek (although I have the Norman Tebbitt autobiog and the Brenda Maddox book on Mrs T in my TBR, so not sure that’s an accurate statement…).  I enjoyed both the background to life at the Telegraph and in politics.  He has a terse and dry (not in a bad way) way of writing which is a bit like Eric Newby’s and this made for a good straightforward read although I did get a little bogged down in the relations of his many travels in the later parts of the book.
