Book Number: 25523
Heinemann 28 October, 1991 1991 8vo hardcover 224pp b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. This is the life story of that legendary Englishman and entrepreneur, Arthur Daley, star of the ITV programme "Minder". It is published to coincide with a new 13-part series. Arthur talks frankly about his childhood, his early business initiatives, his time in uniform. He offers glimpses of life with "'er indoors" and dwells in some detail on his relationship with his former employee, Terry McCann. He aims, in short, to take full advantage of this opportunity to put the record straight, and his accounts of his involvement with a galaxy of establishment figures, well-known to the punter, stop at nothing short of the varnished truth. And he offers a vision - of the future, and of Fulham, scene of his many triumphs over the last half-century.
