The new autobigraphy, Dropping Names David Benedictus

At Eton his fag was Jonathan Aitken. He was private tutor to the Rothschilds. At 22 he published a best seller. Within a few years he had interviewed Judy Garland and watched as the young Coppola filmed his second novel in New York. He organised the early Amnesty Concerts, modelled for Vogue, and assisted Trevor Nunn at the RSC. He was antiques correspondent for The Evening Standard, Commissioning Editor for Drama at Channel 4, a London tour guide, and ran Book AT Bedtime for Radio 4. He has taught in both the private and state sectors and runs a tipping service for horse-racing fans. What David has to say about the arts and society in Britain is alarming - and very, very funny.

 


How To Cope When The Money Runs Out - David Benedictus


This is a book for all those who leave the brown envelopes unopened, who cannot understand why the bank error is never in their favour, and who skip hastily through the travel sections of newspapers. In short, if times are tight you'll find this a godsend.

Mixing anecdote with good solid information and personal reminiscence with encouraging practicality, David Benedictus's fresh and level-headed approach to money matters will help you to keep calm in moments of crisis. He will surprise you by detailing benefits you didn't know you were entitled to, and alarm you by exposing the ruthless techniques of loan sharks. If you need to borrow he will suggest the best ways; if you need to sell he will advise on how to get a fair price. Moving, working from home, clearing bad credit references, getting a mortgage, living economically - all these and more are supplemented with comprehensive and up-to-date appendices which detail all the addresses you could possibly need for further help.

Above all, this is a book written by someone who is patently on your side. It will pay for itself over and over again and leave you wondering how you would have managed if you hadn't picked up How to Cope When the Money Runs Out.

David Benedictus has retained all the best elements of the original text to create this wonderful series of fully-dramatized adventures of Pooh featuring a brilliant cast: Stephen Fry ("Jeeves and Wooster") as Pooh, Geoffrey Palmer ("The Madness of King George") as Eeyore, Judy Dench ("Shakespeare in Love") as Kanga...and best of all, the incomparable Jane Horrocks ("Little Voice" and Bubble from "AbFab") as a squeaky, alarmed, and altogether adorable Piglet. You don't have to be a kid to appreciate these fine recordings (and there are plenty of adult Pooh fans out there who will love these versions). Accept no substitutes: this is simply the finest Pooh audio series yet created.


THE FOURTH OF JUNE
 
The best-selling, fiercely controversial novel of Etonian decadence. Eton … among whose hallowed buildings a 'guinea-pig’ (an ex-grammar school boy) is savagely beaten into paralysis by his House Captain. A bishop spends his evening spying on a chaplain's half-dressed daughter, and a house-master is seduced by a desperate mother ... the Eton of David Benedictus's shock-filled, highly-controversial first novel.
