Description

“A treasure” —Claremont Review of Books

Remembered as orator, statesman, visionary, and wit, Winston Churchill—winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature—was as well known and respected in his own time for his writing.

Now, contemporary readers can revel in one of Churchill’s neglected masterpieces, Thoughts and Adventures—originally published in 1932, during his “wilderness years.” Reading this engaging book is like being invited to dinner at his country seat at Chartwell, where the soup was limpid, Pol Roger Champagne flowed, the pudding had a theme, and Churchill entertained lucky visitors with vivid conversation.

But Thoughts and Adventures is not simply a pleasure to read. More than any other book Churchill wrote, it conveys the extraordinary variety and depth of the statesman’s mature thoughts on questions, both grave and gay, facing modern man. Even when he takes up subjects that seem small, Churchill shows the reader the contours of the largest human questions of our age.

This brand-new edition of Thoughts and Adventures, with an introduction and fascinating annotations by noted Churchill scholar James W. Muller, brings back Churchill’s unforgettable prose, and unmatched insights, for a new generation of readers.

Reviews

“Here in this volume a new generation of readers will be exposed to this remarkable man who, though far from infallible or bereft of blind spots, nonetheless strides across our age like legend out of antiquity.”—Paul Cella, The New Ledger
