There is a new kind of freedom in his thoughts and in his writing.
Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
This is a lovely book; warm, humane, genuinely revelatory and, on occasions, a touch surreal.
Rod Liddle, The Sunday Times
There is something amusing on almost every page of these diaries.
The real Benn is with us still, but that friendly diarist's voice in one's ear has now fallen silent for good. It is an eerie foretaste of quite how much we will miss him when he's gone.
And so the mighty torrent of words finally dries up… It is hard not to admire Benn’s determination to be true to his ideals… Tony Benn is not going gentle into that good night.
A remarkable, charming and often very touching account of old age.
