The best of Politics and Prose

This following quote is from A. G. Noorani's review of a diplomatic memoir in Frontline. I have always admired Noorani's scholastic extensiveness and rigour and eagerly look forward to his articles in Frontline every other week. But never I suspected such a master-stroke in political/literary prose. So for the one or two souls who accidentaly land in this e-space- enjoy!

"All memoirs resemble female attire in their uneasy compromise between the desire to reveal and the necessity to conceal. Sir Christopher Meyer's memoirs resemble a particular attire - the bikini. What is revealed is interesting; what is concealed is vital."
