BOOKS: On the bedside table of Gerald Corbett

'I'm reading Lend Me Your Ears by Boris Johnson, Roy Jenkin's Churchill biography, First Light by Geoffrey Wellum, a personal account of a spitfire pilot, and The Courts of the Morning by John Buchan, a favourite author. I'm also reading Does Education Matter? by Alison Wolf. I pick up different titles depending on what I feel like reading that day.'
