Review:

Both subject and author have an aptitude for exactly the right word, the perfect choice. -- The Los Angeles Times

Langguth . . . is superb at stitching Saki's witticisms into a history of the fop who failed . . . (he) writes perfect sentences. -- The New York Times

More than once, the biographer approaches his subject's skill at the well-turned phrase. -- The Times Literary Supplement
