The Hugo Young Papers
  • The Hugo Young Papers

  • Hugo Young was one of Britain's most influential, respected and trusted political journalists. For decades, until his death in 2003, he talked off the record to politicians from every party, meticulously writing down everything that had been said. This selection of the best of those confidential notes offers an unparalleled insight into British political life, and is a testament to one of journalism's towering figures.

Hugo Young was for over three decades the deputy editor of the Sunday Times and political editor of the Guardian. Ion Trewin is the editor of the Alan Clark Diaries and is currently writing Alan Clark's biography for publication in 2009. After a decade as literary editor of The Times, he became a publisher, retiring recently as editor-in-chief of a London publishing house.
