The Passchendaele volume of the Official History had been published in 1948, generally supportive of Haig and the campaign but one of the weaker volumes and at a time when the world was rebuilding after WW2.

Certainly there is something to that, but it is far more limited than he seems to be aware of. The Latin title translates as “from the depths”, and this 50,000-word letter addressed to Lord Alfred Douglas was written while Wilde was in jail. Charles was a patron of many artists and writers; he was also the model for Swann in Proust’s great novel, and he appears in Renoir’s The Luncheon of the Boating Party (he’s the man in the back, in profile, with a top hat and a reddish beard).

From this view, Faulkner specifies different senses in which 'blind' can be understood: "out of sight, out of the way, secret, obscure" (Chapter 3), "unable or unwilling to perceive or understand" (Chapter 7), "insensible, unaware, lacking intelligence and consciousness, narrow-minded with no openings or passages for light" (Chapter 8), "to dazzle, to dim by excess of light" (Chapter 9). Leaving home didin't mean the end of problems with her mother and, as in the first volume, Cleary makes no attempt to slide over that relationship.

Neil and Stewart, desperate for cash, planned to collect on a $500,000 insurance policy on their mother’s life and use it to salvage the firm. He stopped saying all white men were the devil. When we’re not trying to make a name for ourselves, we’re following the big names on Twitter, liking them on Facebook, and taking selfies with them if we are lucky enough to run into them in real life.

Each chapter revolves around a key figure in the Hemings drama, and the resulting portraits are engrossing and very personal. We also see good detective work as the police peel away onion layers of information to expose sordid facts. I have to admit that I had some misgivings as I opened the new edition to the first page; I worried that it wouldn’t live up to my memory of it. (As all re-readers know, this happens frequently.) But, to my great relief, I was quickly reassured that the book had not lost any of its appeal for me.

David and Aurora have seen visions of each other their entire lives but never met, until now. But lest we hastily surmise that writing in a white coat would make us a Joyce or drowning pages in purple ink a Woolf, Johnson prefaces her exploration with another important, beautifully phrased disclaimer: That power to mesmerize has an intangible, almost magical quality, one I wouldn’t dare to try to meddle with by attempting to define it.

All our books are about aspects of life in Norfolk and Suffolk over many centuries. In Let’s Go Crazy, acclaimed music journalist Alan Light takes a timely look at the making and incredible popularizing of this once seemingly impossible project. He is a Pope of many firsts, including he is the first Jesuit priest to become a Pope and the first one born in the Americas. Like the measured, punctuated musical silences its title alludes to, this book vibrates with meaning and emotion.
