Synopsis

Clement Freud, who died suddenly in April 2009, was a man of many parts. His life embraced a variety of careers, including TV chef, gambler, owner of a night club and several racehorses, radio broadcaster, adventurer and - not least - Member of Parliament. Yet, as his son Matthew declared at his funeral, it was Freud's writing that brought us closest to the man. In addition to several books - notably the children's book "Grimble (1968)", "Freud on Food (1978)", "The Book of Hangovers (1981)" and a volume of autobiography, "Freud Ego (2001)" - he wrote on a vast range of subjects for newspapers and magazines, including the "Observer", "Sun", "Financial Times", "Sporting Life", "Daily Mail", "Tatler", "Guardian", "New Yorker" and "Racing Post". "A Feast of Freud" presents a generous helping of Clement Freud's best and most humorous writing on a broad sweep of topics, including his consuming passions of food, sport, politics and the absurdity of the human condition, reflecting his extraordinarily varied life through the prism of his distinctive deadpan humour.

From the pen of the man who once joked of being 'out-grandfathered' by the younger Winston Churchill comes this richly stocked volume that every Freud fan, no matter in which of his many lives they encountered him, will treasure.

Sir Clement Freud, grandson of Sigmund, was born in Berlin, 1924. His varied career began in Britain as one of our first 'celebrity chefs', and then as a familiar face on TV in a series of dog food adverts. In 1973 he became the liberal MP for Ely and retained his seat for 14 years, subsequently being awarded a knighthood. He was a much-loved regular panellist on long-running Radio 4 show Just a Minute. Emma Freud, Clement's younger daughter, has worked as a TV presenter for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 and a radio broadcaster on BBC Radio 1 and Radio 4. She is a trustee and director of Comic Relief and helped to run the Make Poverty History campaign and Live 8 concerts. She is also credited as script editor in many of her partner Richard Curtis's films, including Four Weddings and A Funeral, Bridget Jones' Diary and Love Actually. Emma and Richard have four children together.
