About the Author:

Radical statesman and Member of Parliament for over fifty years, Tony Benn is the pre-eminent diarist of his generation. His political activity continued after 'retirement' through mass meetings, broadcasts and in more recent years through social media. A widower since 2000, Tony Benn died at his home in London on 14th March 2014.

Review:

"There is a passion in Benn's writing and speaking that far transcends the miserable aspirations of most contemporary politicians" -- Paul Foot * Guardian * "[Benn] has a nice line in self-deprecation and hundreds of thought-provoking or funny stories. He is proud of his forebears and their achievements, bringing them alive even for people who do not share his name or even political views" * Daily Express * "Often revealing, always entertaining... reads like a one-sided conversation, not because he hogs the stage but because people around him realize he has the most interesting things to say, so they listen" -- Jad Adams * Times Literary Supplement * "These three wonderful hours are crammed with so many formative memories, often recalled with a laugh in Benn's familiar voice" -- Rachel Redford * The Observer * "The essays on peace are excellent" -- Simon Jenkins * Sunday Times *
