Paul Reid is an award-winning journalist and was a friend of the late William Manchester, a hugely successful popular historian and biographer. Manchester wrote the first two volumes of The Last Lion (an eventual three-volume biography of Sir Winston Churchill), in addition to assorted works of journalism and several other books: Goodbye Darkness, A World Lit Only by Fire, The Glory and the Dream, The Arms of Krupp, American Caesar, and The Death of the President. In late 2003, William Manchester was in failing health and asked Paul Reid to complete volume three of the Churchill biography, The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill, Defender of the Realm 1940-1965. The book has met with wide acclaim and was praised in these words in The Boston Globe: "Masterful... breathtaking... [Reid] finished the race with agility, grace, and skill.... This is a book that is brilliant and beautiful [and] evocative." Join us at Malaprop's for Paul Reid's reading and signing of this new masterpiece!
