Life with Woodrow Wyatt
Petronella Wyatt writes: "Father was the last of the old school. Described by his friend and former political rival Roy Jenkins as the ultimate original, he was a politician, writer, race horse owner, womaniser and bon vivant - a unique product of pre-war English civilisation. His career ensured him a varied circle of friends. I grew up with such companions as Harold Macmillan, Margaret Thatcher, Rupert Murdoch, Robin Day, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and much of 'Debrett's Peerage'."
Each chapter of this book will contain personal and historically important anecdotes about the famous. It is a waspish social document, irreverent, satirical, dramatic and scandalous, disclosing how the privileged enjoy their privileges, taking the upper crust and pinioning it to the page.
'Father, Dear Father' will allow the reader access to an exclusive club of prime ministers, monarchs and film stars, often in situations so extraordinary that the combined talents of Jerome K Jerome, Wodehouse and Waugh could not have invented them.
