About the Author:

A. N. WILSON is the author of biographies on Jesus, Milton, Tolstoy, C. S. Lewis and Dante. His acclaimed histories, The Victorians and God’s Funeral, have made him an authority on Victorian-era Great Britain. A former columnist for the London Evening Standard, he now contributes to the Times Literary Supplement, New Statesman, the Spectator, the Observer and the Daily Mail.

From Library Journal:

We are indeed compelled to "incline our hearts" toward Julian Ramsay, both narrator and protagonist of this frank and self-effacing tale. Julian describes his boyhood and adolescence as a continual trial to be endured within the confines of several "English Gulags," from the public school system to National Army Service. Contrasted with these harsh male worlds are Julian's anxiety at the early death of his mother, and his attraction, both physical and intellectual, to the few women who cross the perimeters of his prisons. With wit and poignancy, Wilson reveals both the eccentricity and ordinariness of the Ramsay family life to which our hero regularly returns. Given the somewhat inconclusive ending, many readers will eagerly anticipate the forthcoming volumes in this projected trilogy. Julia Duffy, CUNY Graduate Sch. Lib.
