Product description

Review

"Wilson's forte is the character and he brilliantly conveys Betjeman's odd mixture of introspection and sociability, gaiety and melancholia, exhibition and self-disgust ... Betjeman is a poet who badly needs saving from his soppier fans, and this Wilson has done" (Lynn Barber Daily Telegraph)

"Funny, poignant and unusually well written, Wilson's biography does the old boy proud" (Jeremy Lewis Mail on Sunday)

"An A-grade demonstration of the point of Betjeman, the vast constituencies to which he appealed and the area of English life that he made his own" (D.J. Taylor Independent)

"Terrific... [Wilson's] book zeroes in on Betjeman's struggles with his faith, which he places dead centre of the life and work, and on his family difficulties, and does so with extraordinary imaginative sympathy... Essential" (Spectator)

"A joy to read and re-read - the perfect match of author and subject" (Hugh Massingberd Spectator)
