A collection of Jilly Cooper's pieces from "The Mail on Sunday". They include interviews with Margaret Thatcher, the cast of "East Enders" and the proprietress of a brothel in the Nevada Desert, and descriptions of childhood memories, Brighton's nudist beach and the tedium of jury service.
After going to live in the country Jilly Cooper wrote regularly for the Mail on Sunday for several years and this is a selection of her best pieces written at that time. The topics she covers in her inimitable style range from the hunt balls and Henley to love and sex in the ages of AIDS. She interviews Margaret Thatcher, Neil Kinnock, Lord Hailsham, the cast of Eastenders and the proprietress of a famous brothel in the Nevada desert and writes about her fellow human beings and their foibles provocatively, affectionately and sometimes outrageously. Her portraits of family life in the Cooper household remain the most ruthless and hilarious of all.
Jilly Cooper comes from Yorkshire and was educated at Godolphin School in Sailsbury. For twenty-five years she lived in London and for thirteen of them she wrote for the Sunday Times, during which time her column was one of the most widely read features in the paper. In 1982 she moved to Gloucestershire and began writing a column for the Mail on Sunday. She makes frequent appearances on television and has done many radio broadcasts.
