A Crack of the Whip is an unvarnished, blissfully politically incorrect memoir. From the un-happy privations of a 1940s prep school to high jinks in the Caribbean, Antony has led a full and remarkable life. Packed with tales from National Service, the City, industry, racing, travel and high and low society, A Crack of the Whip is a romp through life and history.
From the Foreword by Robin Oakley:
‘Those reading this book will surely include anybody who has ever been anybody in Cheshire, Barbados or Lambourn society or who shares Antony’s memories of the old Four Hundred nightclub, bargain dinners at the Café de Paris, the Curzon Club or the Allegro Room at Quaglino’s... ‘These are memoirs without rancour, enlivened by some splendid anecdotes. Read and enjoy.’
