The King's Speech

In an odd juxtaposition the book is coming out after the movie. Mark Logue is the grandson of Lionel Logue, who helped George VI with his stammer. Logue became interested in his grandfather when the production company contacted him. He rediscovered his grandfather as he read the papers that had been stored away. The King's Speech is Logues recounting of his families move from Australia to the service of a King. It is a quick read and a lovely look at his family.
