"I hope that you will share with me my interest in the following subjects, about which I have written recently. My life as a teenager in Southern Rhodesia and the enigmatic character of Robert Mugabe, who became its leader when that country became Zimbabwe. The life of Marilyn Monroe: one of glamour but also one of sadness, for she was, in fact, unbeknown to most, a traumatized and vulnerable person. Did any of Adolf Hitler’s henchmen; or his doctor; or his wife-to-be Eva Braun, think/believe that the German Führer was a madman? If so, to what extent were they prepared to admit it? Religious fundamentalism of whatever kind, and the violence that accompanies it, is universally decried. But how does it arise? What makes a fundamentalist? And most importantly, how can fundamentalism be prevented?"
"The following two books which are shortly to be published are, I hope, of general interest and particularly so to those who know and love Dorset."
