"Too often biographies make depressing reading. The young firebrand becomes the old reactionary and the brightest young thing dims into the dullest of embers. It is refreshing, therefore, to read a life that does not follow this dispiriting trajectory. Writing with great frankness and understanding, the author puts no gloss on anything and is painfully honest about his origins and mistakes. The memoir is a fascinating read that carries the reader along, wanting to know what happens next: the interest never flags.”
