Nobody even came close -- INDIA KNIGHT He never once produced a boring sentence or a phrase that did not shine -- JOHN WITHEROW The king of irreverent critics -- LIONEL BARBER A giant among journalists . . . His wit was incomparable, his writing was dazzling and fearless, his intelligence was matched by compassion -- MARTIN IVENSshow more
