This is a vivid portrait of a privileged, well-connected, utterly charming man, who did much to instil and protect our current culture of freedom of speech. Case Histories examines the now-centenarian Jeremy Hunt QC’s most remarkable and scandalous cases of the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s, detailing the ‘moral dramas’ of those people the world viewed as amiable rogues, harlots and philanderers; people such as Howard Marks, Christine Keeler and Great Train Robber Charlie Wilson.
By turns amusing, thrilling, enlightening and downright mad, Charles Foster’s look at the life of animals, which he researches as a method actor would an arduous role, is a book that defies classification. It opens with Foster heading off with his eight-year-old son to entreaty a farmer to dig him a man-sized badger set, where for six weeks they will dine on foraged earthworms and fall into
soily beds. It continues into episodes as an otter, a fox, a stag and a swift, to become a profound and special work about our sensory intelligence and our desensitisation to that which is wild.
