Forgery, larceny, perjury, bigamy and infamy: it's all here. The Telegraph Book of Scandal collects the paper's reporting on the most outrageous events and individuals in its 160-year history. From Oscar Wilde's trial to the Profumo affair, the unmasking of Anthony Blunt as a Soviet spy, right through to their searing coverage of the expenses scandal; corrupt politicians, sex-crazed singers, murderous dictators and shady businessmen alike will be named and shamed. Tapping into the universal desire for 'something sensational to read on the train', and using the same addictive editorial structive as the bestselling Thinker, Failure, Soldier, Jailer, this book will be perfect for anyone looking for an irreverent, surprising and sometimes tragic alternative history of the two centuries.
