Supping with the Devils : Political Writing from Thatcher to Blair Paperback
by Hugo Young
'One of the greatest liberal voices of our age. I have never admired a journalist more than I have admired Hugo.' Chris Patten Supping with the Devils brings together Hugo Young's incisive and wide-ranging journalism.
Starting with the 1980s, it interprets the major events that have punctuated British political life, from the resignation of Margaret Thatcher to the rise of New Labour.
But it is more than a book about party politics. Urgent, penetrating and always original, these articles, taken together, confirm Young's reputation as our most morally engaged commentator. 'It's a cruel blow to have lost such a clear, strong voice at a time when we most need to hear it.
Hugo was one of those few people whom one feels better for having known.' Robin Cook 'This beautifully produced book shows that Young's claim to posterity is well-founded.
Indeed it bears witness to the power of his journalism of explanation, integrity and detachment.' Observer'In all he did, Hugo Young was a gracious and lucid guardian of civilised values...an incisive editorial writer with a fine indignation.' Harold Evans
