I Never Read the Critics

New Channon Bio Minds the Gaps

By Patrick Tuft
[Special to Writers Clearinghouse News Service]

Lord of Hosts: The Life of Sir Henry 'Chips' Channon
Richard Carreño
WritersClearinghousePress 172pp
$24.99 Hardback

The value of this concise Life of Sir Henry 'Chips' Channon is that it fills many of the gaps in his famous Diaries. In their nature diaries tell you what the author wants you to know: either because he thinks things are of no importance or that some things are best left unsaid about the author and others. Here you learn that the diariest was notably gay, for instance. Chips' published Diaries are, in any case, but a small portion of a larger work.
