A collection of Terry Wogan's best TELEGRAPH columns, with his trademark wry take on life.
'It's my feeling that whatever's bothering you, you ought to be able to say it in less than 500 words. The rest is window-dressing ... Probably explains why I didn't write War and Peace ...'
Sir Terry Wogan has been busy over the past 10 years writing his ever-popular SUNDAY TELEGRAPH column.
In this first collection of the very best of his weekly musings, Terry delivers his distinctively dry and amusing views on life. From the disappointment of the declining years, the ubiquity of TV cooks ('Nowadays, you can't throw a stone in a country road without hitting a television chef, in full colour'), to vanity and those little daily annoyances that drive you to drink - and never fails to entertain - Terry's modern grumbles, gentle social commentary and witty observations make for a delightful assortment of reading.
Charming and wry, with not a hint of lickspittle, this is Wogan's World at its most entertaining.
Terry's blend of homespun wisdom and irreverence is a necessary tonic to our frenetic, celebrity-fixated culture, and this timeless tome contains the pick of his 'pithy pars'. — Choice
Full of characteristic bonhomie, it's an uplifting and philosophical read, perfect for dipping into at leisure. — GOOD BOOK GUIDE
