I was born in London on 22nd April 1929, but in fact I lived most of my childhood in the Middle East. My father was Lebanese but he had an English education, culminating in three years at Oxford University where he met my mother, who came from a Scottish family. Both my parents were from middle class professional families, one grandfather being a minister of the church in Yorkshire and the other a doctor in Khartoum.
