Skip All That: Memoirs - Robert Robinson

Century, 1996, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges with a faint stain to the top ½" of the lower panel.

2nd impression. [First Edition: 1996]

From the cover: “In a style both crisp and engaging he writes of his wrestling-match with Dame Edith Sitwell, his undergraduate assault on the whole of the American nation via Time Magazine, his run-ins with politicians when he was presenting the Today programme, his hilarious encounters with film stars – Jayne Mansfield, Bette Davis, David Niven, Robert Mitchum and many others – and his disastrous appearance as an actor with John Osborne and Jill Bennett, live, on BBC2. Such droll set-pieces are combined with evocative excursions into the world of literature in the company of Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden, J. B. Priestley and Vladimir Nabokov. Each sequence is alight with the irony and wit for which the founder of Points of View, the creator of Stop the Week, and the presenter of Call My Bluff and Brain of Britain has for so long been celebrated.”
