The Paddington Library Reading Group delved into the occasionally murky world of the lives of politicians at our last meeting. We decided to create some space between our reading and contemporary matters by looking at biographies of luminaries such as Benjamin Disraeli and William Gladstone and the political diaries of Alan Clark.
The diaries of Alan Clark run to several volumes. The group found that they read well and are thorough, thoughtful and interesting. Alan Clarke seems to have led a very full life and was a keen observer of events and politics, to say the least!
