* Disraeli's Reminiscences

on BBC Radio 3

In the second of three programmes Sir John Gieigud reads from the reminiscences Disraeli wrote in the first half of the 1860s, before he became Prime Minister for the first time. In them he looks back on 40 years of striving for literary and political success and social acceptance, and the stories are the nearest Disraeli came to non-fictional autobiography, containing some of his finest and wittiest writings. Introduced and selected by Lord Blake Producer
