Korda demonstrates some structural chops by opening this biography with the part of T.E. Lawrence we remember from the Academy Award winning film. He then spends the next six hundred pages telling the incredible tale of Lawrence's life as well as the formative history of today's politics in southwest Asia. The writing is gorgeous and only occasionally flares with This is one of the few biographies I am truly glad to have read.
