First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: Tom Shields Free At Last, the third in the Tom Shields Diary trilogy, has been eagerly awaited by the sort of people who have absolutely no idea what to buy Dad for Christmas.

Tom Shields Diary has become an institution in the Glasgow Herald. The man should have been put in an institution many years ago.

Shields has written the Diary column in the Herald since May 1979 when Mrs Thatcher came to power. A humourless and surly individual, Shields has been soured by years of being approached by glamorous young women who proceed to tell him that their grannies are great fans of his work.

He hopes to retire soon with the help of a small set-aside grant through the European Common Agriculture Policy.

Of his three books, this one is definitely the most recent. With the exception of the long bits, most of the stuff in it is mercifully short.
