Stephen Robinson

Write Review

Rated 0

Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

* The long and fascinating life of a national institution, Bill Deedes: journalist, war hero, Cabinet Minister, newspaper editor, and journalist again

* 'A compelling portrait' INDEPENDENT

Drawing on a rich selection of private papers and hours of interviews with Deedes and his contemporaries, Stephen Robinson charts brilliantly the depths and shallows of the life of the man who inspired Evelyn Waugh's hapless reporter William Boot in Scoop and was the recipient of Private Eye's famous Dear Bill letters. Deedes was also a husband and father of five and Robinson explores the rumour and reality with equal measure to reveal the true character of one of the most extraordinary men to have graced the pages of the British national press.
