No Ordinary Man: a Life of George Carman. Signed copy.

£14.99

Product description

No Ordinary Man: a Life of George Carman, by Dominic Carman. Signed by the author.
Published by Hodder & Stoughton, 2002. First edition (not first printing).
The successful defence of former Liberal leader, Jeremy Thorpe, on charges of conspiracy to murder, made George Carman QC famous. His mastery of cross-examination and speech-making succeeded in winning a string of high-profile cases that earned him the titles of Great Defender and King of Libel. 'Gorgeous George' attracted a string of celebrity clients and his public triumphs made front page news. Yet, this very private man remained a mystery. In a full and frank account of his life, Dominic Carman explains how his father, the ambitious boy from Blackpool, fought to become the star of the Bar. This compelling account, reveals the story of a man whose private life was as extraordinary as his public life was successful.

Signed by author on title-page, with the date 'July 9th 2002' added at the top. Pages clean, binding tight. Dust-jacket slightly scuffed around edges.
