The bizarre hoo-hah over Tom Bower's new book on the rise and fall of Conrad Black (see here and here) reminds me that Black's wife Barbara Amiel had an affair in the late 1980s with the notoriously up-for-it publisher George Weidenfeld (then in his 70s) -- here he is in his pomp.

I know this is not the crucial question of the hour, but for several years I've been trying to find where and when it was that Weidenfeld said, apropos of his womanising, that
I don't go much for fucking, but I am the king of cunnilingus.

Can anyone give chapter and verse?
