Description
Information
Whether political commentator, social critic, crusader or humorist, the newspaper columnist must combine opinion with personality. Many of the most popular and successful, from George Orwell and Damon Runyon to Keith Waterhouse and Auberon Waugh, wrote columns that spoke not just of the moment, but were also of lasting significance, speaking with a direct, individual - even provocative - voice to their readers. Whether they are acting as our conscience or reflecting our daily lives, the columnists cover every subject: from war correspondent Ernie Pyle's unforgettable description of flotsam left on the D-Day beaches, to the perversity of clothing by the incomparable Jill Tweedie. The column has become a mirror in which every facet of our lives is reflected, every day.
