Product description

Review

'In characteristically wide-ranging style, Ferdinand Mount's Full Circle tackles the question of the legacy of the classical world' --New Statesman

`Mount mounts a compelling and amusing case' --Evening Standard

'A readable, stylish, expansive, occasionally sharp and stimulating series of reflections ranging widely over the modern world' --Literary Review

'In Mount's book . . . there is a feeling of growth and regeneration . . . Mount is at the peak of his career, and one feels there is a great deal more to come' --Philip Womack, Daily Telegraph

'Think we're addicted to fame? You should've seen us 2,000 years ago'
--Mail on Sunday

`An author of obvious erudition, with a great flair for anecdote' --Guardian

'A delightful excursion along the cultural loop line . . . conducted by a witty and knowledgeable guide . . . Take him with you on holiday: you won't regret it'
--Financial Times

`Elegant, interesting and funny . . . go out and buy it at once'
--Independent

`A delightful book: rumbustious, eclectic, erudite and stimulating, the vade mecum of a fine mind . . . its brilliance is something sui generic: quite its own' --Ross Leckie, Country Life

'Mount charms the reader ... is an entertaining guide to ancient Rome' --Sunday Times

'Full Circle is imbued with the same wit as its predecessor and is both entertaining and thought-provoking' --The Economist

'characteristically witty prose' --The Oldie

'It is a world which he makes, in his good-humoured and elegant style, seem amazingly contemporary.' --Daily Mail

'Aldous Huxley referred to himself as an "home de letters". If anyone could lay claim to that title, then it is surely Mount' --Daily Telegraph

'These parallels between the ancient world and ours are intriguing...[he] takes us with wit and charm through many absurdities of the remote past' --The Spectator

'...the triumph of the generalist, whose intellectual vigour trumps academic rigour. Take him with you on holiday: you won't regret it' --The Financial Times

'Mount's thesis... is lightly and humorously expressed...' --The Times
