The effects of writing about Hitler (quote)

For a time I kept on my desk a copy of Ian Kershaw’s Hitler, 1889-1936: Hubris, a work of grand scope that served as my field guide to the politics of the era. On the cover is a photograph of Hitler that became for me so repulsive – apologies to Sir Ian – that I had to keep the book on my desk facedown, as it were, for to start each day with a look at those hate-filled eyes and slack cheeks and that fragment of Brillo that passed for a mustache was far too dispiriting.
