  Penny Junor Wednesday 3 July 2002  
Writer and broadcaster Penny Junor is the daughter of legendary editor of the Sunday Express, Sir John Junor.

Her biographer of her father has just been published and is a far cry from a sentimental tribute from a doting daughter. Rather, it's a portrayal of a man who was, in her own words, a womaniser, a misogynist, and a hypocrite.
In researching his life Penny Junor discovered her father's unpublished novel, clearly based on his own life. She tells Jenni how this gave her a clearer picture of his philandering.
Penny Junor, Home Truths, published by HarperCollins, ISBN 0071022135
