What an extraordinary chap was Clement Freud. He was cantankerous, rude, incredibly talented and humorous.
Whatever the man attempted, he gave 110% - read the chapter upon horse racing where Freud loses weight at a speed and in amounts that are difficult to contemplate: needless to say, he beat a regular amateur rider on his only outing.
Clement was the grandson of Sigmund Freud but, seems to have built his fame without even a nodding admission of this fact. This book is a thoroughly enjoyable read and an inspiration to us all. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Clement Freud arrived in England and was despatched to a notorious 'progressive' school, where he spent more time drinking cider than attending lessons. After an eccentric childhood, and a spell as an apprentice chef at the Dorchester Hotel, things went downhill as Clement became a soldier, night-club owner, journalist, television personality and Liberal MP. By the end of Freud Ego, Clement is celebrating his win at the Ely by-election...a contest for which he backed himself 33-1."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
