'In this first ever collection of letters to The Times Kenneth Gregory has assembled a glittering - and sometimes barbed - array of the most witty, entertaining and memorable correspondence published in the columns of Britain's most august newspaper during the first seventy-five years of the twentieth century. Among the 'top people' whose eloquence fills these pages figure a host of writers, artists, sportsmen, statesmen and public personalities.'
