LONDON: Today the Financial Times and Penguin publish Lunch with the FT: 52 Classic Interviews in hardback and eBook format. The book, edited by FT editor Lionel Barber, with a foreword by CEO John Ridding, reads like an international Who’s Who of our times. From film stars to politicians, tycoons to writers, dissidents to lifestyle gurus, Lunch with the FT is a selection of classic interviews conducted in the unforgiving proximity of a restaurant table. Featuring a collection of memorable lunches with prominent personalities – ranging from Angela Merkel and Jeff Bezos to Michael Caine and Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs – the book will both enlighten and entertain.
Lunch with the FT is part of the Financial Times’ 125th anniversary celebrations with anniversary receptions in London and New York, a global marketing campaign and a dedicated hub on FT.com, which will feature anniversary content throughout the year.
