It is being plugged everywhere - have heard about it on R4, read a review in The Week and seen it mentioned several times in the Observer. (OK everywhere = my small segment of the media!). My dad would like it, I think. It contains the final dispatches from ambassadors to various countries; until recently they traditionally wrote a final piece saying exactly what they really thought. Can I remember what the damn thing is found? Can I locate it through a whole day of googling likely keywords? I cannot. Dear MNers, somebody must know.

Matthew Parris? I think it was him.
