Product Description

Publisher: John Blake

Author: Gwen Russell

Motoring aficionado, comic writer, television host, engineering buff, journalist, author, and unapologetic bon viveur, Jeremy Clarkson is one of Britain's most controversial personalities, and in this riveting and entertaining biography, frank views and hilariously candid anecdotes appear alongside the life story of the self-confessed Eurosceptic, chain-smoking grease monkey. After a stint as a traveling salesman, Clarkson set up his own press agency, and soon found fame and fortune with BBC's Top Gear. Notoriously hit in the face with a banana meringue pie the day he received his honorary degree, he has been accused of calling cyclists "muesli freaks" and BMW employees "Nazis." Love him or loathe him, he can't be ignored. (pb)
