An anthology of the author's journalism, and in it he swoops from Gulf War to Glyndebourne, calls in on Gutenberg and Piltdown man, shivers at the thought of female prize-fighters, attacks the moral thuggery of homosexual 'outing' and rescues the name of Hannibal from flesh eating murderers. He raises his voice in praise of Francois Villon and the resurrection of Everyman's Library - irreverent, searching, disarming as ever. **** NOT EX LIB ****

3 Levin, Bernard In These Times
London Jonathan Cape 1986 0224024051 / 9780224024051 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. xx + 298 pages. 'Freedom, responsibility and art are the themes I now return to most often. I always did write about them, but they now make up a greater, and still increasing, proportion of my writing', declares Bernard Levin in this, the fourth anthology of his journalism. He pleads in this volume not only for the victims of oppression at the hands of foreign totalitarian powers - for Lithuanian Balys Gajauskas in the Gulag and Jaroslav Javorsky suffering in a Czechoslovakian prison - but also for freedom fromfanaticism and jargon in our own society. He explains why the taking of responsibility for our personal actions will soon become the crucial issue of our time, and why the art of Francis Bacon will not. Levin leads us on an old fashioned treasure hunt through Tehran which must have left the Russian embassy there madly trying to decode the 'capitalist sense of humour'. We go to the steps of the Grand Hotel in Brighton just after the bombing and are offered reassurance in the act of Mrs. Thatcher tidying her hair. We stop over at a South African courtroom where five boys charged with murder are let off with dumbfounding leniency, and at an American courtroom where impudence is the order of the day.
