Reviews

Highly entertaining. * Independent * A decade after his death, Auberon Waugh's genius is as fresh as ever. * Telegraph * A tereific anthology of the twentieth century's greatest satirist. * Literary Review * A brilliant distillation of his prose. * Country Life * Supremely funny * Mail on Sunday * 'For those who appreciate good writing and who delight in an elegantly phrased raspberry to the world's over-earnest bores, Kiss Me Chudleigh is a masterful collection of a strange but brilliant journalist.' * The National Business Review, New Zealand * 'Absorbing and affectionate...This beautifully conceived anthology combines biographical detail with pithily hilarious extracts. Eclectic, thoughtful and always entertaining, this well-presented selection gives a fresh perspective on an extraordinary talent.' * The Good Book Guide * 'A most unpleasant man.' * Tony Benn * 'Wickedly funny, but sometimes just wicked.' * Lynn Barber * 'The greatest journalist of his generation.' * Geoffrey Wheatcroft * 'An ideological trailblazer.' * Boris Johnson * 'The Dean Swift of his day.' * AN Wilson * 'A master of the surreal.' * Craig Brown * 'Auberon Waugh ... was the most controversial, the most abusive, perhaps the most brilliant journalist of his age - an acerbic wit, a traveller, a farceur, an epicure; above all, a hater of humbug in all its forms and of politicians in most of theirs.' * The Telegraph *
