Further reflections of an exuberant life

Stanley Johnson: one-time spy, politician, animal rights crusader – and irresistibly brilliant raconteur. From his career as a Member of the European Parliament to his pioneering work saving the rainforests, Stanley Johnson’s life has roamed many avenues. Amongst much else, he has served on the staff of the World Bank and the European Commission, penned dozens of books, appeared on many popular television shows and won awards for his environmental campaigning, besides fathering six children, including the current Mayor of London.

This second volume of rip-roaring and hilarious recollections from the man himself begins with him falling out of a tree on his fortieth birthday, then picks up where its acclaimed predecessor, Stanley, I Presume, left off. Along the way, we’re treated to the sights of Stanley posing as a burglar, horrifying Margaret Thatcher with his cocktail party repartee, climbing Kilimanjaro (twice) and navigating the turbulent rapids of parenthood.

Riotous and illuminating, Stanley, I Resume paints a vivid portrait of a politician, poet and adventurer, an idealist, a family man and – above all – a born storyteller.
