Reach for the Ground : The Downhill Struggle of Jeffrey Bernard Paperback
Part of the Duckbacks S. series
For forty years Bernard wrote only about himself, and the tale of his life, loves and failures has become legendary.
Reach for the Ground is an irresistible collection of the best of Jeffrey Bernard's celebrated Low Life contributions to the Spectator.
The column was once described as 'a suicide note in weekly instalments' and became a national institution whose passing was noted with great sorrow.
Peter O'Toole's affectionate introduction recalls a forty-year-old friendship and three sparkling autobiographical essays encapsulate the defining experiences of Bernard's life.

Review by Lillput
Having seen Robert Powell in "Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell" I wanted to learn more about the subject of the play.This is a collection of his columns from The Spectator and are at once hillarious and terribly sad.
