-Publisher

Britain's long-established clerical tradition is given color and life in the pages of this collection of obituaries culled from the pages of its national journal of record, The Daily Telegraph. The conservative daily newspaper's obitutaries are celebrated for their well-written and incisive description of their subjects - never more so than when describing celergymen, from Monsignor Alfred Gilbey who rode to hounds weekly in frock coat and gaiters to Brian Brindley who died surrounded by his acolytes in the midst of a five course dinner at his Club. Now in paperback, Trevor Beeson 's compilation is highly entertaining and the editor also contributes an extended introduction in which he evaluates the clerical tradition and makes some piercing comments about the state of the Churches today.
