Diaries Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The first volume of the 20th century's most phenomenally successful diaries, published alongside first paperback of THE LAST DIARIES. INTO POLITICS begins in 1973 with Clark's selection as Tory candidate for Nancy Astor's old seat in Plymouth (rival candidates included future Conservative luminaries Michael Howard and Norman Fowler).

Alan Clark describes his election to the Commons in the 1974 general election; his years as a backbencher coincide with Edward Heath as PM, his downfall and the arrival of Margaret Thatcher.

This volume ends with the inside story of the Falklands War. In his private life Alan and his wife Jane and their two young sons take over Saltwood Castle, previously the home of his father Kenneth (Civilisation) Clark.

His enthusiasms for the estate, skiing, fast cars and girls are never far away.
