Description

About the Book

101 chance meetings, juxtaposing the famous and the infamous, the artistic and the philistine, the pompous and the comical, the snobbish and the vulgar, told by Britains funniest writer. Life is made up of individuals meeting one another. They speak, or dont speak. They get on, or dont get on. They make agreements, which they either hold to or ignore. They laugh, they cry, they are excited, they are indifferent, they share secrets, they say how do you do? Often it is the most fleeting of meetings that, in the fullness of time, turn out to be the most noteworthy.One on One examines the curious nature of different types of meeting, from the oddity of meetings with the Royal Family (who start giggling during a recital by TS Eliot) to those often perilous meetings between old and young (Gladstone terrifies the teenage Bertrand Russell) and between young and old (the 23 year old Sarah Miles has her leg squeezed by the nonagenarian Bertrand Russell), and our contemporary random encounters on television (George Galloway meets Michael Barrymore on Celebrity Big Brother). All human life is here, dancing in a circle. Ingenious in its construction, witty in its narration, panoramic in its breadth, One on One' is a wholly original book.
