I have an antiquarian lady in England, who regularly use to tip me about good books,
which she knows I haven't read.
Of some strange reason, she always have right, perhaps because I read to little,
or probably that I buy books of a certain cathegory.
I lhooked on history and biographies/memoirs.
She sent me these three books.
Picture of the last one's back and front,
the other two looks about the same but different colours.
Please magnify the backsite and read the text, because it's about the two others,
in the triloghy
This is the front
The first voulme I finished 4 of Junary 2009, the second the 7th and the third the 11th.
The third was as good as the others, but they have to be read in order.
Together it's about 1400 pages. You read it like an adventure!
Edited exactly on his notes, by his son Nigel, also an author and publisher.
Nigel's son, Adam Nicolson, is also famous as a writer among his books, that also became a TV serie:
But it's the diaries that are just amazing. You have never read anything like that.
I have since then, bought 9 books, by Harold Nicolson and 2 books by his son Nigel,
among them, Nigel's own memoirs, 'Long Life', also strongly recommended.
Anyway it's 'Harold Nicolson Diaries and Letters 1930-1962' edited by his son Nigel you shall read.
Please do so
