It’s Finally Done!
My father’s last book is about to be published:
FINAL BOOK OF CHURCHILL TRILOGY COMING THIS FALL
By HILLEL ITALIE, AP National Writer – 4 days ago NEW YORK (AP) —
The third and final volume of the late William Manchester’s beloved series on Winston Churchill is coming out this fall, nearly 25 years since the previous book. In November, Little, Brown and Company will publish “The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965.” The new work was started by Manchester and completed by Paul Reid, a former writer for Cox Newspapers. Manchester, who began the Churchill series in the 1980s, was in poor health during his latter years and asked Reid to take over the project. Little, Brown spokeswoman Nicole Dewey said Sunday that the first two biographies had sold hundreds of thousands of copies and that the publisher still receives frequent inquiries about the third book. Manchester died in 2004 at age 82. Copyright © 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
Coincident with this news I have just launched a new website: http://johnkmanchester.com/
It’s devoted to my father’s work and my own, including fragments of one tie that still binds us, 8 years after his death: my memoir, Escaping the Giant. It contains rare family photos, samples of my music, my father’s biliography and links, plus a hand picked page of 60s Counterculture resources.
