Egg and Soldiers: A Childhood Memoir (with postcards from the present) by Damien Trench by Miles Jupp

'A gloriously enjoyable read from start to finish' - Daily Express

'Here's a book to savour' - Mail on Sunday

Miles Jupp (News Quiz presenter, star of Rev, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and The Thick Of It) delves into the mind of his comedy creation Damien Trench - urbane food writer and protagonist of BBC Radio 4's acclaimed sitcom In and Out of the Kitchen.

'Are you Damien Trench?' said the lady operating the stall.
'I might be,' I said to the lady.
'You are though, aren't you?' she asked.
'Well...yes,' I agreed. And that was that.
She seized me by both hands, pulled me towards her, and launched into a passionate monologue that covered a selection of dessert recipes that I had once offered up in print, her difficult relationship with soft cheeses and her husband's irritable skin. So intense was her manner that it was extremely difficult to tell if she was scolding or praising me. All I knew was that she was staring so intently at me that I became worried that parts of me would dry up and just drop off like smoked chipotles. Also, her eyes were so extremely wide open that I began to worry that it might be dangerous to let so much light into your head. As soon as she stopped speaking, I thanked her for being willing to share, broke free from her grasp, panic-bought three punnets of raspberries on the way out and then sprinted back to the Uno as fast as fast can be.
