For many years Auberon Waugh has kept a diary of his working life.This highly important document,now published for the first time,covers the years 1972-76,a turbulent and fascinating period in English history, during which Waugh is always at the centre of things.Whether on his huge country estate in Somerset,or in the massage parlours of Soho, Waugh observes the scene with an uncompromising and truly breathtaking concern to discover the facts.What kind of knickers does Mrs Len Murray wear? Is Harold Wilson an agent of the K.G.B.? Should Bernard Dru be given the opportunity to lead us out of our continuing crisis? These are only some of the questions which Waugh is not afraid to pose,as he mixes man to man with all the most fascinating figures in the political and literary life of the early 70s. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices, weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!
So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk ,because of the lighter weight and value of this item for correct,insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!
