Product description

Review

a brilliantly lively, often very funny reconstruction of a lost world of artistic endeavour and social idealism. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Bryan Appleyard is our foremost guide to understanding contemporary culture. This exploration of what it means to be human today grips the reader from the front page. (John Gray)

There are great science writers and there are great art writers - and then there's Bryan Appleyard. He's both. (John Humphreys)

Bryan Appleyard is that rarest of birds, a journalist who can mine factual subjects for their poetic resonance right across the spectrum. He is our main man for this kind of writing. (Clive James)

One of the most interesting, curious, cultured and trenchant writers on this planet. (Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of THE BLACK SWAN)

Bedford Park is a witty and erudite historical novel, set mostly in London in the late-Victorian and Edwardian eras...It is also a brilliantly lively, often very funny reconstruction of a lost world of artistic endeavour and social idealism through which Appleyard's American abroad wanders in a fruitless search for his true self. (Nick Rennison SUNDAY TIMES)

Appleyard has created this novel, set in the West London suburb of Bedford Park, around the lives of noted Edwardians...Beautifully written. (DAILY MAIL)

Deft characterisations...virtuoso language...dry and economical wit...excellent fiction. (THE SPECTATOR)
