Abstract:

Desmond Zwar's career followed the tradition of brash boys from the Australian bush making good in cosmopolitan Fleet Street-alas now the home of bankers and property developers rather than newspapermen. Zwar was there when British journalism was at its best, and from stories about the Queen to film stars, politicians and scandals (lots of those) he confirmed the Fleet Street view that there was no one better able to dig out the real story than an Aussie. This is a funny, engrossing memoir of a golden age.
