"gravitas, grandstanding and gossipy insight"

Geoffrey Robertson has never not known whose side he is on and what he wants to say. His learned account of his life — from the wastelands of suburban Australia via the Oz trial at the Old Bailey, to the Hague and his marriage to Kathy Lette — is no exception. One of the world’s most famous human-rights lawyers, who has represented everyone from pornographers to Princess Diana, he showcases his immense talents with typical gravitas, grandstanding and gossipy insight.
