Rated 0

Biography: historical, political & military, Autobiography: historical, political & military, Prose: non-fiction

Some of the most talked about books of recent years, Alan Clark's diaries provide a witty and irreverant insider's account of political life in Britain. Now in one volume.

'From the moment the first scabrous and brilliant volume was published, people wanted more. Now they have it and they will not be disappointed...'

'These diaries are not wonderful simply because they show a politician unafraid to say what he thinks, and refusing to suck up to those whom he represents. They are great because they show all sides of a man who was, within his complex personality, arrogant, sensitive, loyal, unfaithful, patriotic, selfish, selfless, and - at all times - completely Technicolour.' - Simon Heffner, Daily Mail.
