Outcasts' Outcast by Peter Stanford
Book DescriptionFrank Longford often said during his long life that he would like his epitaph to be 'the outcast's outcast'. It summed up a long career as a politician, writer and campaigner on social and prison policy which was all about standing up for the unpopular, the underdog and those on the margins of society. But what of the man behind the eccentric appearance, the dynasty of writers that he fathered and the largely unpopular crusades that left a public reputation as either Lord Porn or Myra Hindley's only friend? Drawing on hitherto unavailable papers, including the private diaries of the Countess of Longford, Peter Stanford is able to present us with an unprecedented insight into Frank Longford the man. "The Outcasts' Outcast" reveals one of the twentieth century's most colourful, original and intriguing figures, now restored to his rightful place by this intimate and insightful biography.
