Product description

Review

‘A journey to be relished…For this is the story of a pursuit, and of a pilgrimage…Stothard brings to bear a lifetime of classical study, a scholar’s nose for the keenest truffles amongst the footnotes and implications of the bagful of well-thumbed texts he has packed for the road, as well as an instinct for salient gossip and an easy manner with strangers.…He is relaxed, amused, observant, and refreshingly unstuffy.…weaving his tale through the dreamy underworld of ancient poems and letters, portraying a land as vicious and prejudiced and redemptive, as strange and familiar as our own.’ Tom Adair, Scotsman

Praise for ‘30 Days: A Month at the Heart of Blair’s War’:

‘An observant, thought-provoking book, written with admirable lightness of touch.’ Evening Standard

‘Stothard expertly shapes a narrative in which Blair manages to stick by his principles…’ Publishers Weekly

‘Peter Stothard’s terrific book…’ New York Times

‘A remarkable encapsulation of history’ Kirkus
