    This book was purchased during a trip out, and I confessfor the attractive price than any real experience of the subject I had memories of him appearing for many years with Henry , his dog, sitting at a table looking lugubriously at his bowl of food, and later to a lesser extent as an MP Freud not the dog The book is made up of articles that he wrote for magazines and papers over a thirty plus years period, and is split into sections such as food and sport Truth be told though, food This book was purchased during a trip out, and I confessfor the attractive price than any real experience of the subject I had memories of him appearing for many years with Henry , his dog, sitting at a table looking lugubriously at his bowl of food, and later to a lesser extent as an MP Freud not the dog The book is made up of articles that he wrote for magazines and papers over a thirty plus years period, and is split into sections such as food and sport Truth be told though, food and drink features in the vast majority of the pieces which I found OK generally but the ones purely about food weren t to my, er, taste Reading the book it brought Bill Bryson to mind the author described each activity and subject with a good deal of wit and never with any sort of disrespect of ridicule, except of himself My own favourite part of the book was when he described being ordered, during the second world war, to drive a number of prisoners to somewhere or other in a truck when he pointed out to the Major ordering this task that he didn t know how to drive the Major retorted Serves the b ds rightHe also tells us that this experience of driving started him off for a lifetime of motoring a driving test never featured in this Some of the pieces in the book will be a bit alien to younger readers, mentioning pre decimal UK currency and long forgotten celebs and MP s but it becomesup to date when he takes 90 s celebs out for lunch and describes these encounters After reading the book, I was sorry that I hadn t happened upon one of his articles years ago as it would have made me buy the next edition of whatever paper of mag he was writing in A case of you never know what you ve got till you lose it Well worth a read, in my view

    I bought this after reading Freud s weekly column in Saturdays Racing Post and I wasn t disappointed His range of subjects is impressive and the quality of the writing is always top notch You have to read the articles with Clement s lugubrious voice in mind.I ve read an article a day for the past few months as bathroom reading and I m going to miss his company

  3. Russio says:

    Always interesting,I had his voice with me for days after reading this,ordering fabulous food and drink and being generally less polite than usual Frequently funny but sometimeslet down by the sense that the guy has only ever known priviledge and that I struggle to kow tow to people in that position i.e Isn t it interesting when one is at a fox hunt when ,etc.

  4. Sarah Brown says:

    Disappointing, his autobiography was so much better.

  5. Gaz Watson says:

    Something to dip into Mr Freud has a way with words and his dry wit brings a smile every time.
