A Mad World, My Masters: Tales from a Traveller’s Life

By John Cody Fidler-Simpson

Rating: 3 stars

This volume by the long-term BBC correspondent is mostly anecdotes from his working life, with each chapter covering a theme, such as travel, villains etc. Simpson comes across as someone who enjoys the finer things in life, but is happy to forego all of them if it gets him a story. I’m not entirely sure if I’d like the man himself, but there’s no denying that he’s a good raconteur, with many stories to tell from his long and interesting career.
