Part Two, covering everything from AC's turn to politics onward is much more interesting and readable than the earlier chapters, which can be a slog during the early "K begat A" type stuff. Clark was a fascinating and in some ways admirable man, yet a complete bastard with it. Trewin presents a balanced picture, and a warm-hearted one, doing Clark's memory a great service. Recommended, particularly if you enjoyed the Diaries.
