Om Webster's World
For over a decade, Jack Webster's weekly columns in The Herald have delighted his many loyal readers throughout Scotland. Following on from the success of his best-selling Herald Years, this new collection of Jack's finest work is full of warmth, humour and journalistic curiosity that have become his trademark over the years. Webster's World ranges from the wild and remote North-East of Scotland to the noise and bustle of Manhattan, from nostalgic childhood memories of a rugged Buchan homeland to evocative descriptions of legendary figures - Charlie Chaplin, star of the silver screen; Fitzroy MacLean, soldier, writer and adventurer; Richard Rodgers, the celebrated composer; and John Paul Getty, the richest man in the world. Whether describing the ancient wonders of the Arabian desert, the tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, the dark crimes of Peter Manuel, or the many uplifting stories of human courage and achievement that he has come across throughout his career, Jack Webster always manages to paint a vivid, entertaining and often very moving portrait of the world in all its moods.
