Arnie Wilson started hunting down “big names” after being hired by a news agency to telephone titled people and charm them into divulging stories he would sell to Fleet Street gossip columns. But the ‘celebrity’ landscape was changing. Instead of targeting lords, baronets knights and their ladies, he was determined instead to find ‘real’ celebrities, persuading them with a combination of cheek, charm and chutzpah to divulge funny and intimate anecdotes for publication.

    Big Name Hunting by Fleet Street stalwart Arnie Wilson is just knockout! Vastly entertaining it offers an enticing glimpse into the often madcap world of the Fourth Estate. Packed full of hilarious encounters with genuine big names – rather than some of today’s two-bit celebs – it’s a non-stop scream from first page to last. It’s also, in its very readable way, extraordinarily informative. From rock stars to royalty, poseurs to Presidents, Arnie Wilson’s been there – done it – got the tee-shirt and lived to tell the tale. It’s a riotous, rumbustious, rollicking good read. And it’s hugely recommended.
