A frank autobiography by The Times columnist and ex-politican. Part participant, part bystander, Matthew Parris describes what it was like to be so close to the centre and remain an outsider. He speaks of politicians, friends and family and his famous rejection by Mrs Thatcher.
Matthew Parris was born in Johannesburg in 1949. For seven years a Conservative MP, he quit to present LWT's Weekend World, after which he became a regular parliamentary sketchwriter for The Times. His books include READ MY LIPS and SCORN WITH ADDED VITRIOL (both available in Penguin), and INCA-KOLA, about his travels in Peru. He has also made a number of television documentaries, including most recently an account of his sojourn on a remote sub-Antartic island.
Shortlisted for Saga Award for Wit 2003 and Orwell Prize 2003.
