When, in 1951, the "official" biography was published, a close friend of Keynes remarked: "This is the biography of Lord Keynes. Someone else must write the life of Maynard. " Now Charles Hession has done so.
Keynes's complex personality, his ambiguous sexuality, his life long friendships with the Bloomsbury group - Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey, Duncan Grant and the others - all are explored by Hession as keys to understanding Keynes's originality. The revelation of the biography isn't so much undiscovered skeletons in unopened closets, as it is a keen insight into the relationship of the whole man and his work.
Keynes's theories have been much discussed, but what of the man himself ? What was he really like, and what difference did that make?
Don't miss this opportunity to join a unique conversation. There will be a reception at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 6:00, followed by the discussion with Hession. Remember, reservations must be made by October 12th.
