Michael Holroyd, the well-known biographer, offers a short and often hilarious self-portrait in 'five easy pieces', each dominated by a motor vehicle: the moribund Ford in his grandparents' garage; the old Austin in which he learned to drive; his first car, a daffodil-coloured DAF; the cars of his biographical subjects – Augustus John's Buick and Bernard Shaw's De Dietrich; and his present Honda, with its 'extraordinarily insensitive' sat-nav.
