The diaries of Sasha Swire, wife of former Conservative MP Hugo Swire, have attracted a lot of attention and several lengthy book reviews. But one point has been mostly missing from them:
It’s not particularly a partisan point, as reviews in both The Spectator and The Observer omit mentions of such references. It may be that with a 500+ page book, the reviews are not based on the book being closely read. But even so, it’s not a good world where a book can get reviews without such elements of it even being mentioned.
