Jack Webster

Grains of Truth

Scots journalist Jack Webster broadened his audience dramatically in the 1980s when he became the award-winning creator of highly personal documentary films for television. These films were based on his two acclaimed volumes of autobiography – A Grain of Truth and Another Grain of Truth – which looked back on an eventful life stretching from his Aberdeenshire upbringing, including a moving portrayal of the last day on his father's farm at Maud, to a distinguished career in journalism. A wonderfully evocative and entertaining account of life in the North-east of Scotland and beyond, these two Grains of Truth have now been brought together in one captivating volume. Whether describing his meetings with Charlie Chaplin, Muhammad Ali or the colourful local characters of his native Maud, Jack Webster writes with a warmth and humour that will be familiar to all those with whom he shared his thoughts, memories and experiences over many years in the pages of the Scottish Daily Express and The Herald.
