Victor Stock is the Rector of St Mary le Bow, London, and is a regular broadcaster on BBC Greater London radio. Through 'style and accessibility' he has resurrected the fame and fortune of the famous 'Bow-bells' church. One of the church's new ventures has been an award winning restaurant in the crypt. He also initiates regular weekly dialogue meetings with personalities to which all are welcome. Anecdote follows anecdote in often hilarious prose of meetings that have included such names as Diana Rigg, Stephen Fry, Tony Blair as well as the Queen. What Victor has thought, felt, done and seen can tell us many things about the best and the worst in people - but in the end the book is a celebration and an illuminating glimpse at humanity. Victor Stock is surprising. He is not what you expect a Vicar to be.
Victor Stock, the Rector of St Mary le Bow in London, holds lunchtime "Dialogues", the church's regular weekly meetings with personalities to which all are welcome. Victor's diaries are filled with stories from the Dialogue's celebrities such as Judy Dench, A.S. Byatt and Sir Yehudi Menhuin.
