Review


"His adventures transport us, with a jangle of spurs, from one conspiracy to another, from Shakespeare in his playhouse, to the battle camp of Henri IV. At the invitation of Tregian's novelist biographer, no reader could fail to be swept up in the excitement." Laurence Liban, "L'Express"
"Francis Tregian's extraordinary journeys through war-torn Europe keep readers riveted to the page and on the edge of their seats." Jean-Marie Volet, "World Literature Today"
"Anne Cuneo's magnificent book offers a humanist investigation of the most discerning kind." Philippe-Jean Catinchi, "Le Monde"


The vivid, free-flowing translation here is by Louise Rogers Lalaurie and Roland Glasser. This more than does justice to what is a marvelously rich and multi-layered piece of work Serious students of either history or music are not going to be disappointed here. Andrew Green, "Classical Music Magazine"
It's not always that a writer with an interesting life writes interesting fiction. In this case Anne and her equally talented translators have it sussed this is totally engrossing by the time we take our leave of Francis as he awaits my Lady Death we are breathless and amazed, not to mention chuffed, to have made his acquaintance. "Bookbag"
Francis is a worthy main character and I wanted the best for him, even when I felt he made the wrong choices. Anita Davison, "Historical Novel Review"
[A] big, fat, absorbing historical novel that is by turns swashbuckling and tender that sweeps us along excitingly and paints a series of vivid pictures strongly cinematic The English translation of Tregian s Ground does full justice to this long book with its finely calibrated tone and many historical, literary and musical allusions, and it reads beautifully throughout. Jean Morris, "Shiny New Books"
an unparalleled contribution to the Bildungsroman genre S.J.L.Constantine, "Glasgow Review of Books"

"Tregian s Ground" certainly has many cinematic qualities of the best kind . . . The vivid, free-flowing translation here is by Louise Rogers Lalaurie and Roland Glasser. This more than does justice to what is a marvelously rich and multi-layered piece of work . . . Serious students of either history or music are not going to be disappointed here. Andrew Green, "Classical Music Magazine"
"This novel is based on a historical figure and, as is the typical benchmark for works in the genre, Cuneo s empathetic and informed immersion into Tregian s world gives the novel its claim to prestige. Cuneo handles the historical detail with a deft touch it is sufficient but not excessive and intersperses it well with vivacious dialogue and an authoritative, carefully researched knowledge of old London." Ben Paynter, LA Review of Books
