Bakewell’s reflections on her life and times have been hailed as heartfelt and fiendishly smart. Now in her early 80s, it was in the swinging sixties the Labour Peer was famously dubbed the ‘thinking man’s crumpet’. A girl from Stockport, she won a scholarship to Cambridge, going on to be an intrepid reporter, fronting challenging TV shows. Her much publicised affair with Harold Pinter was the focus of his play Betrayal. Stop the Clocks, is a book of musings covering life, love and politics, from one of the most outspoken and courageous women of our times.

Joan will be interviewed by Lennie Goodings, publisher and Virago chair.
