Stanley Johnson: one-time spy, politician, animal rights crusader - and irresistibly brilliant raconteur. From his career as a Member of the European Parliament to his pioneering work saving the rainforests, Stanley Johnson's life has without doubt been one characterised by adventure.

This second volume of rip-roaring and hilarious recollections from the man himself begins with him falling out of a tree on his fortieth birthday, then picks up where its acclaimed predecessor, Stanley, I Presume, left off. Along the way, we're treated to the sights of Stanley posing as a burglar, horrifying Margaret Thatcher with his cocktail party repartee, climbing Kilimanjaro (twice) and navigating the turbulent rapids of parenthood.

Riotous and illuminating, Stanley, I Resume paints a vivid portrait of a politician, poet and adventurer, an idealist, a family man and above all a born storyteller.
