A Feast of Freud

Clement Freud who died suddenly in April was a man of many partsHis 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 manIn addition to several books notably the children's book Grimble. This book was purchased during a trip out and I confess for the attractive price than any real experience of the subject I had memories of him appearing for many years with Henry his dog sitting at a table looking lugubriously at his bowl of food and later to a lesser extent as an MP Freud not the dog The book is made up of articles that he wrote for magazines and papers over a thirty plus years period and is split into sections such as food and sport Truth be told though food and drink features in the vast majority of the pieces which I found OK generally but the ones purely about food weren t to my er taste Reading the book it brought Bill Bryson to mind the author described each activity and subject with a good deal of wit and never with any sort of disrespect of ridicule except of himself My own favourite part of the book was when he described being ordered during the second world war to drive a number of prisoners to somewhere or other in a truck when he pointed out to the Major ordering this task that he didn t know how to drive the Major retorted Serves the bds right He also tells us that this experience of driving started him off for a lifetime of motoring a driving test never featured in this Some of the pieces in the book will be a bit alien to younger readers mentioning pre decimal UK currency and long forgotten celebs and MP s but it becomes up to date when he takes 90 s celebs out for lunch and describes these encounters After reading the book I was sorry that I hadn t happened upon one of his articles years ago as it would have made me buy the next edition of whatever paper of mag he was writing in A case of you never know what you ve got till you lose it Well worth a read in my view

Is 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 humourFrom 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. Always interestingI had his voice with me for days after reading thisordering fabulous food and drink and being generally less polite than usual Freuently funny but sometimeslet down by the sense that the guy has only ever known priviledge and that I struggle to kow tow to people in that position ie Isn t it interesting when one is at a fox hunt when etc
