One of our wittiest political commentators, Simon Hoggart shares some of his funniest memories in these hilarious memoirs A Long Lunch. What really happened at the Lady Chatterley trial? What exactly did Enoch Powell say to Bill Haley? And just why did John Sergeant drive a flight attendant to fury? We discover  the answers to all these and more as he looks back on forty years of journalism.

This rates as one of my better reads of 2010 – insightful, wise, humane and entertaining! Read on and thank you Mr Hoggart.
