‘The historian’, wrote E.L. Doctorow, ‘will tell you what happened. The novelist will tell you what it felt like.’ Reflections: Conversations with Politicians sees Peter Hennessy and Robert Shepherd combine both with the art of the interviewer, a craft at once sensitive and intrusive. Reflections collects the best interviews from the BBC Radio 4 series of the same name, each ‘more of an interim biography of the interviewee than an excursion into the combat zone with, one hopes, the occasional burst of now-it-can-be-told revelation.’ Reflections includes interviews with such political heavyweights as John Major, Clare Short, Nigel Lawson, David Owen, Margaret Beckett, David Steel, Roy Hattersley, Neil Kinnock, Norman Tebbit, Jack Straw and Shirley Williams. These interviews with the great statesmen and office holders of yesteryear, filled with insight, pride and occasional regret, provide intriguing snapshots into British political life in the late twentieth century.
