Home from Home
I'm at the Heritage Foundation this morning for a lecture by the historian Andrew Roberts on his book THE HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH SPEAKING PEOPLES 1900-2000. Andrew is a historian and writer I greatly admire. I was introduced to his work about 12 years ago when I read his only novel, THE AACHEN MEMORANDUM, which centres around Britain pulling out of the EU in 2045. His biography of Salisbury is his best book so far - a real doorstopper but beautifully crafted.
