Tickets: £2 We are proud to present Adam Sisman who will be talking about one of the must-read books of the year - his recently published biography of Hugh Trevor-Roper. Clever, witty and sophisticated, Trevor-Roper was the most brilliant historian of his generation. Until his downfall, he seemed to have everything: wealth and connections, a chair at Oxford, a beautiful country house, an aristocratic wife, and, eventually, a title of his own. He possessed a lucid prose style which he used to deadly effect and he was notorious for his acerbic attacks on other historians, but ultimately tainted his own reputation with a catastrophic error when he authenticated the forged "Hitler Diaries". A study in both success and failure, Adam Sisman's biography is a revealing and personal story of a remarkable life. We find out about the wartime code-breaking, the discovery of Hitler's will buried inside a bottle, his wide-ranging interests, his snobbery and his malice, his formidable post-war feuds with Evelyn Waugh, Tawney, Toynbee, Taylor and many others, and his secret and passionate affair with an older, married woman. Tickets cost £2 and can be obtained by telephoning or visiting the Customer Service Department, Second Floor, Blackwell Bookshop, Oxford. Tel: 01865 333623. (oxygen_142)
