Graham Lord has published nineteen books, among them seven biographies, two autobiographies, nine novels, two novellas, a dozen short stories, scores of essays, hundreds of book reviews, and thousands of newspaper and magazine columns and articles.

Here from his files are eighty of the best of them, ranging from a vividly touching description of his childhood bungalow home in Mozambique in the 1940s, his report of a British by-election at Newbury in 1993, and his admiration for the astonishingly multi-talented Cecil Lewis, whom he calls ‘the last great Englishman,’ to his musings about rude book reviews, writing a diary, sleazy women novelists, the British Book Awards and the Frankfurt Book Fair.

He writes irresistibly of his worldwide travels: stalking impala at night in the Kruger Game Reserve, nearly drowning white-water rafting in the French Alps, cruising from Bermuda to Boston, catching the fabulously luxurious Eastern and Oriental Express at midnight from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok, staying at ‘the best hotel in the world,’ and revelling in exotic trips to Java, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and the Great Barrier Reef.

And he describes with deep affection the tiny, idyllic West Indian island where he and his wife, Juliet, a highly talented painter, now spend their winters.

Graham Lord was born and educated in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), raised in Mozambique, took an honours degree in History at Cambridge, and spent twenty-three years as Literary Editor of the Sunday Express in London, where he wrote a weekly column about books and met almost every major English language author of the 1960s to the 1990s.

After leaving the Sunday Express in 1992 to become a full-time author he wrote regularly for The Daily Telegraph, The Times and the Daily Mail, and from 1994 to 1996 he edited the short story magazine Raconteur.
