In Rogue's Progress, Bradley tells the story of his life as the son of a Yorkshire lord and a Welsh mother, and his rise through the British aristocracy. Nicholson, a childhood friend of Bradley's, tells the story of his own life, from his impoverished beginnings as a coal miner's son to his meteoric rise as a Conservative MP. The two stories intersect in fascinating and sometimes comic ways, as Nicholson recounts his efforts to win the heart of Lady Caroline Lamb and Bradley recalls his disastrous courtship of the heiress Bridget Jones. Rogue's Progress is a deeply personal account of two remarkable men, one from the working class and the other from the aristocracy, who strived to make their mark on the world.; 8vo ; 330 pages.
