Riassunto: 'I catch myself agreeing with newspaper columnists that I would have regarded as bilious only a few years ago.' This book will be a collection of Terry Wogan's best columns from the past 10 years, delivering his distinctively dry and amusing views on life. Terry's weekly writing has spanned across many topics - from the disappointment of the declining years, TV cooks ('Nowadays, you can't throw a stone in a country road without hitting a television chef, in full colour') and vanity, through to the little annoyances that drive you to drink - and never fails to entertain. His modern grumbles, gentle social commentary and witty observations make for a delightful assortment of reading. Terry Wogan is among Britain's best-loved and most popular entertainers. His extensive television credits include BBC CHILDREN IN NEED, THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, COME DANCING and BLANKETY BLANK, to name but a few. Terry presented WAKE UP TO WOGAN on BBC Radio 2, which ran for 27 years and regularly attracted over 8 million listeners; it became the most-listened to breakfast show in the UK. In a moment of weakness Her Majesty the Queen honoured him with a knighthood in 2005.
A collection of Terry Wogan's best TELEGRAPH columns, with his trademark wry take on life.
'It's my feeling that whatever's bothering you, you ought to be able to say it in less than 500 words. The rest is window-dressing ... Probably explains why I didn't write War and Peace ...'
Sir Terry Wogan has been busy over the past 10 years writing his ever-popular SUNDAY TELEGRAPH column.
In this first collection of the very best of his weekly musings, Terry delivers his distinctively dry and amusing views on life. From the disappointment of the declining years, the ubiquity of TV cooks ('Nowadays, you can't throw a stone in a country road without hitting a television chef, in full colour'), to vanity and those little daily annoyances that drive you to drink - and never fails to entertain - Terry's modern grumbles, gentle social commentary and witty observations make for a delightful assortment of reading.
Charming and wry, with not a hint of lickspittle, this is Wogan's World at its most entertaining.
