Über diesen Titel:
Below the Parapet is the story of Denis Thatcher?s very personal journey as only his daughter could tell it. It is also a riveting account of the Thatcher years as seen from the inside.
On the eve of his retirement from a successful business career, Denis Thatcher became Britain's first male prime ministerial consort, mixing daily with some of the most powerful people in the world. 'Below the Parapet' is the story of his extraordinary life, as only his daughter could tell it. It is also a riveting account of more than a decade of political triumph and turmoil, told from a totally unique perspective, offering an honest and highly entertaining insight into the Thatcher years as seen from the inside.
?There are scores of hilarious anecdotes, all crisply related? Carol Thatcher has done more than capture her father, she has by faithfully rendering him, caught all the cadences of a type of Englishman? In capturing their standard bearer from fiction and making him flesh and blood Carol Thatcher has done that generation, and posterity, a service.?
?Carol Thatcher has skilfully woven some of her mother's adventures into the narrative to illustrate the part her father played at critical moments. In doing so she has in several areas told us more than her mother Margaret Thatcher revealed about herself in two long volumes of autobiography?
W.F. DEEDES, 'Telegraph'
?Unpretentious and enthralling?

?An essential addition to the Thatcher bibliography?
