More thrills than skills – A half-life in journalism, part 79

Over the next few weeks, is to publish, each weekday, edited extracts from the memoirs of Scottish war correspondent, Paul Harris. ‘More thrills than skills: A half-life in journalism’, is being scheduled for publication next year.

However, I much preferred the ambience of Green’s, where the guests all seemed slightly mysterious and you could readily imagine that they were up to no good.
