Hugely engaging ... this trilogy has ensured that [Mullin] will join Chips Channon, Duff Cooper and Alan Clark in the pantheon of truly great diarists -- Matthew D'Ancona * Evening Standard *
A fascinating read, crammed with gossip, jokes, insights and anecdotes ... his loathing for artifice and pretence, along with his fundamental decency, make Mullin a captivating tour guide. -- Lloyd Evans * Spectator *
An open-minded chronicler whose eye for the absurd does not spare his leaders, colleagues or himself ... [the diaries] give much pleasure. -- Brian Groom * Financial Times *
Rich in human detail ... it is uncany how many echoes there are of present-day politics ... [Mullin should] have gone into some less shabby profession, but if he had, the Commons would have been a poorer place. -- David Robson * Telegraph *
Contains hundreds of droll asides and observations -- Roger Lewis * Telegraph *
