Paul Reid - Biographical Brief
Paul Reid is an award-winning journalist. In late 2003 his friend, William Manchester, in failing health, asked Paul to complete The Last Lion: Defender of the Realm.
While he now lives in North Carolina, his family for 30 years were Red Sox season ticket holders. As Paul is a Red Sox fan, so was William Manchester.
That both should be Red Sox fans is no surprise, as John Cheever, himself a writer of no mean talent, wrote, “All literary men are Red Sox fans.”
