Note to self

Before finishing fat volume of Lloyd George biography (to 1912) and ordering second fat volume of same (1912-16), have a google and check whether the author is still alive to finish the damn thing.
It had been his intention to round out Lloyd George’s life by completing one volume on the last two years of the war and one on the postwar premiership and political career, but despite completing the work through 1917, it remained unfinished at his death.
Mercy sakes. Lloyd George's last victim?


  1. You'll never know how it turned out.

    I've still got the latest volume of Caro's Lyndon Johnson unfinished. Will he make it to finish that one?

  2. There's probably a bookie in the UK giving odds on that.
