It might be like reading the account of a best friend when it comes to reading the authorised biography of Allan Hubbard, Allan Hubbard, The Life and Times of a Kiwi Legend , out today, so you have to take the bias of the author Virginia Green with a large grain of salt because she has been picked by Hubbard's team to write the book. From publicity for the books release:
"The biography, Allan Hubbard, The Life and Times of a Kiwi Legend is due out in November.
The last two chapters will cover the sudden twist Mr Hubbard's life has taken since he and wife Jean, their company Aorangi Securities and Hubbard Managed Funds, along with seven charitable trusts, were placed into statutory management by the Government on June 20.
The biography has been written by Virginia Green, who has worked closely with Mr Hubbard for the past three years, with the manuscript expected to be finished in mid September.
Publisher Random House New Zealand publicity manager Sarah Thornton said the book was an authorised biography.
"It will be about the arc of his entire life, starting in his childhood.
The statutory management had altered the book.
"Virginia is writing the two final chapters based on recent events. We won't know the outcome of the investigation at the time of going to print."I will be getting a copy of the book myself so I will give you my view of it shortly. The last 2 chapters on what has become the Allan Hubbard saga will be interesting.
Footnote The book release has been delayed until November 15 and will now be called Allan Hubbard: Man out of Time.
