As a national newspaper editor his success has been phenomenal, his influence on the country’s highest decision-makers profound, his contribution to journalism unequalled. As an uncompromising and controversial columnist, he has attracted a huge and intensely loyal readership spanning all ages, all classes and all persuasions. He is, of course, John Junor. Now this eminent newspaperman looks back over a career that has brought him into the closest touch with princesses and prime ministers, with politicians, press barons and nabobs, with the common and the uncommon man; a career in which he has not only reported and commented on great events, but played a part in them too, and at their very centre. John Junor’s memoirs are no mere nostalgic backward glance at Fleet Street. They are a brilliant, often surprising and always compelling record by a true insider in the hall of fame. This is a book that will provide a wealth of source material for historians as well as an absorbing read for anyone who has ever opened a newspaper.”
