The Glossy Years : Magazines, Museums and Selective Memoirs Paperback / softback



'The most entertaining book of the year' Sunday Times 'The autobiography of magazine kingpin Nicholas Coleridge is a Waugh-like whirlwind of eccentric characters, lavish parties and even a spell in a Sri Lankan jail.

It was funny enough to excuse all the name-dropping' Evening Standard, Books of the Year 'A ludicrously well-connected magazine impresario.

Whimsical tales of Bob Geldof, William Hague, Princess Diana and George Osborne jostle with recollections of glitzy parties at castles and producing the Eton magazine with Craig Brown.

It's gossipy good fun' Sunday Times'A deliciously moreish memoir of the author's glittering career in magazine publishing.

Like having a really good gossip over a glass of fizz with Evelyn Waugh' Sunday Telegraph'Sparkling.

Witty, nimble and engaging, it is wonderfully entertaining and a marvellous slice of social history' Jane Ridley, Spectator'Brilliant.

I laughed almost continuously' Charles Moore, Spectator'An irresistible read, hilarious, honest and insightful.

I adored it' Tina Brown 'Forthright, witty and gossipy.

A passion for glossy magazines shines through this effervescent memoir' Sunday Express
