Scots journalist Jack Webster broadened his audience dramatically in the 1980s when he became the award-winning creator of highly personal documentary films for television. These films were based on two of his acclaimed volumes of autobiography - A Grain of Truth and Another Grain of Truth - which looked back on an eventful life stretching from his Aberdeenshire upbringing, including a moving portrayal of the last day on his father's farm at Maud, to a distinguished career in journalism. A wonderfully evocative and entertaining account of life in the North-east of Scotland and beyond, these two Grains of Truth have now been brought together in one captivating volume. Whether describing his meetings with Charlie Chaplin, Muhammad Ali or the colourful local characters of his native Maud, Jack Webster writes with a warmth and humour that will be familiar to all those with whom he shared his thoughts, memories and experiences over many years in the pages of the Scottish Daily Express and The Herald.

Book Description Black and White Publishing, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. This title brings together Jack Webster s two volumes of autobiography. The first part brings to life his homeland of Buchan in the north-east of Scotland. He describes in detail his childhood years in Aberdeenshire with stories of honest hard-working folk, people with often dour exteriors and a sharp, wry sense of humour twinkling beneath. From his childhood, the story moves on to the early years of his career on the Turiff Advertiser and his time at the Scottish Daily Express , with tales of his travels and meeting with the famous all over the world. The second part continues his story, opening with the roup in Maud, the auctioning of his family farm, and going on to tell stories and anecdotes of the famous and not-so-famous inhabitants of his native Buchan - people like his great grandfather, Gavin Greig, a scholar of international repute, and the celebrated writer, Lesi Grassic Gibbon, who tragically died at the age of 33. Whether writing of his meetings with the rich and famous, of great events, bloody murder or simply his memories of his childhood, Jack Webster displays the qualities of writing that has made him one of Scotland s best-loved journalists. He is the author of Famous Ships of the Clyde . Seller Inventory # AA99781873631379
