'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.'
'A master of the surreal.'
'The Dean Swift of his day.'
'An ideological trailblazer.'
'The greatest journalist of his generation.'
'Wickedly funny, but sometimes just wicked.'
'A most unpleasant man.'
'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.'
'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.'
A brilliant distillation of his prose.
A tereific anthology of the twentieth century's greatest satirist.
A decade after his death, Auberon Waugh's genius is as fresh as ever.
