THE BEST SELLER WHO INSPIRED THE OSCAR AND THE BAFTA AWARD-WINNING FILM A man saved from the British Royal Family in the early decades of the 20th century – surprisingly, he was almost unknown, and certainly qualified, speech-language pathologist called Lionel Logue.Logue was not a British aristocrat or even an Englishman – he is a man of the people and a starter Australian.Nevertheless, he was outgoing, kind Logue who alone changed the famous nervous, language-to-equal, Duke of York, into the man who was able to become King.A Logue not recorded Bertie (as the man who would become King George VI was always known) from his debilitating stuttering, and pathological nervousness in front of a crowd or microphone, then it is almost certain that the House of Windsor would have collapsed.The Speech of a King is previously unpublished history of the extraordinary relationship between Logue and the haunted young man who became King George VI, taken from Logue’s unpublished personal diaries.They cast an extraordinary light on the intimacy of these two men – and the essential role of the King’s wife, Queen Elizabeth’s end, Queen Mother, played in bringing them together to save her husband’s reputation and career as King.The King’s Speech is an intimate portrait of the British monarchy at the time of its greatest crisis, seen through the eyes of an Australian man who was proud to serve and save his King.
