‘You must be proud, bold, pleasant, resolute, And now and then stab as occasion serves.' (Christopher Marlowe, Edward II)
‘Stephen Spinks has made excellent use of the original sources and recent scholarship to spell out an engaging portrait of this complex and often misunderstood king. At the same time he has produced a lively and clear narrative history of a reign the relentless politics of which can often confuse.’ (Sara Cockerill, author of Eleanor of Castile: The Shadow Queen)
About the Author
Stephen Spinks wrote his dissertation on Edward II while studying at King's College, London. He works for the National Trust and manages three Medieval heritage sites with 900 volunteers and 150 staff. He is a columnist for 'Midlands Zone' magazine, in which he writes a very well received exploration of life as a gay man today, partly political, partly personal. He has given many interviews on radio and in his capacity at the National Trust, to 'BBC's Escape to the Country' and the 'Antiques Road Show'. He has been studying the primary sources (and locations) for this book over the past 15 years.

I look forward to his next book.
Additionally, the book has a rich appendix, colour illustrations and a complete bibliography for those who are keen for further reading on Edward's life. This is a wonderful debut for Stephen Spinks, and I will be looking out for anything he may write in the future. Highly recommended.
