About this book
More entertaining and indiscreet stories from the sometimes less than diplomatic ambassadors, based on the Radio 4 series presented by Matthew Parris to be broadcast in September 2012. It follows the success of "Parting Shots", and extracts will also appear in "The Times" on publication.
Matthew Parris brings together some of the funniest despatches from British Ambassadors abroad, in this sequel to his acclaimed Parting Shots. Based on a new BBC Radio 4 series, it shows our representatives in their best and worst lights: rude and sympathetic, clever and confused by turns.
