Charles reviewed Gordon Brown's new book for the Literary Review.
My Life, Our Times is a Big Clunking Fist of a political autobiography. It demonstrates Gordon Brown's strengths and exposes his frailties. The book is well written, sometimes drily humorous and at moments gripping, not least when he turns to the subject of his personal tragedies. It makes a powerful case for the positive contributions he made, but it also skates over persistent questions about his record.
