Publisher's Summary

A friend once said of Churchill: "He is a man of simple tastes; he is quite easily satisfied with the best of everything." But dinners for Churchill were about more than good food, excellent champagnes, and Havana cigars. "Everything" included the opportunity to use the dinner table both as a stage on which to display his brilliant conversational talents, and an intimate setting in which to glean gossip and diplomatic insights and to argue for the many policies he espoused over a long life.
In this riveting, informative, and entertaining book, Stelzer draws on previously untapped material, diaries of guests, and a wide variety of other sources to tell of some of the key dinners at which Churchill presided before, during, and after World War II.

They should have gotten a different narrator

Would you try another book from Cita Stelzer and/or Davina Porter?

Davina Porter is not a good narrator for this book. Her dialect and timing of the reading is poor ,given Churchill's booming and VERY CLEAR DEFINITIVE VOICE. They should have gotten a male narrator. Also, even though dinners may have been critical, the depth of the manuscript suffers greatly.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

They needed a male narrator who spoke more clearly and authoritatively.
