Something for the Weekend: The Collected Columns of Sir Terry Wogan
‘I catch myself agreeing with newspaper columnists that I would have regarded as bilious only a few years ago.’ This book will be a collection of Terry Wogan’s best columns from the past 10 years, delivering his distinctively dry and amusing views on life. Terry’s weekly writing has spanned across many topics – from the disappointment of the declining years, TV cooks (‘Nowadays, you can’t throw a stone in a country road without hitting a television chef, in full
colour’) and vanity, through to the little annoyances that drive you to drink -
and never fails to entertain. His modern grumbles, gentle social commentary and witty observations make for a delightful assortment of reading. Terry Wogan is among Britain’s best-loved and most popular entertainers. His extensive television credits include BBC CHILDREN IN NEED, THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, COME DANCING and BLANKETY BLANK, to name but a few. Terry presented WAKE UP TO WOGAN on BBC Radio 2, which ran for 27 years and regularly attracted over 8 million listeners; it became the most-listened to breakfast show in the UK. In a moment of weakness Her Majesty the Queen honoured him with a knighthood in 2005.
