Overweight and overwrought, London s most successful journalist abandons home, partner, mistresses and above all television, the instrument that brought him identity and power. His quest- to climb above the noise line, to get beyond the e.mail and the mobile phone and the interminable clamour of the public voice of which he himself was such a master. Weeks later, snowed in at five thousand feet, harangued by voices from the past and humiliated by his inability to understand
