"One of the finest biographies of our time." (Graham Greene)
"An outstanding book, a worthy memorial to its subject." (Kingsley Amis Observer)
"An excellent book, not a critical study but a biography that shows unobtrusive critical acumen as well as deep imaginative understanding. It is as lovingly detailed as the records of Owen's short life permit, but it is always fascinatingly readable, in fact engrossing." (John Lehmann Sunday Telegraph)
"This stunning work of non-fiction is a moving tribute to one of the giants of 20th century literature and deserves your immediate attention." (UK Press Syndication)

Although I read the more recent biography by Dominic Hibberd, I found it dry and lacking in soul, this biography though is first rate. I appreciate this is a reprint, but nevertheless Jon Stallworthy's book stands as a great biography and both concisely written and very lively to read.
This reprint is well presented and a sturdy book to hold, read from and keep.
