David Hartnell: Memoirs of a gossip columnist by David Hartnell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is a really great read. Yes there are masses of info and gossip about the stars and celebrities. And where many people in his profession claim to have met everyone, he actually comes closed to anyone I’ve read to having done so.
But, unlike so many gossip columnists, his work is not malicious or nasty. This makes it very refreshing.
Plus his own life story alone is worth reading it for. By the time you’ve finished you’ll find yourself liking and admiring this guy a lot.
David is also the only Gossip Columnist to have been honoured by the Queen!
He is a holder of the New Zealand Order of Merit. MNZM.
Highly recommend.
