The Sunday Times bestsellerFull of hilarious and shocking stories, the Secret Barrister's memoir Nothing But The Truth tracks their transformation from hang 'em and flog 'em austerity-supporter to celebrated, campaigning, bestselling author. 'Masterful, compassionate and hilarious' - Adam RutherfordIn a diary that takes us behind the scenes of their middling ambition, Nothing But The Truth charts an outsider's progress down the winding path towards practising at the Bar. By way of the painfully archaic traditions of the Inns of Court, where every meal mandates a glass of port and a toast to the monarch, and the Hunger Games-style contest for pupillage - which most don't survive - here is the brilliant reality of being a frustrated junior barrister. With a keen eye for the absurd and an obsessive fondness for Twitter, SB reveals the uncomfortable truths and darkest secrets about life in our criminal courts. _____'Words tumble out with extraordinary fluency . . . entertaining and instructive' - The Times'Written with compassion, wit and intelligence' - TLS'Excellent . . . at once a vicious polemic, a helpful primer and a cringe-inducing account of one barrister's travails' - The Telegraph
