On 3 December Simon Jacot and Philip Blackwell, the owner of Shapero’s Bookshop, hosted a literary evening to celebrate the launch of my biographies of Shirley Williams [Biteback] and The Patriotic Duke: The Life of the 14th Duke of Hamilton [The Thistle Press]. Both Shirley Williams and Lord Selkirk, the eldest surviving son of the Duke of Hamilton, were present, as were Andrew Lownie and David Havilland of Thistle Press and Sam Carter and Olivia Beattie of Biteback.
