Product description

Review

"Meticulously plotted and written with bouncy confidence... A rattling good yarn" (Spectator)

"Derby Day is a triumphant success...in this unputdownable Victorian romp [Taylor] enjoyably proves himself to be one of the finest of our 21st-century novelists" (AN Wilson Financial Times)

"The novel is richly redolent of the novels of Wilkie Collins, Dickens and Thackeray... The characters who plot and squirm throughout the course of Derby Day are fully rounded and memorably drawn and the atmosphere is palpable. In fact here is an intelligent novel which is also a genuine page-turner. Truly a terrific read" (Peter Burton Daily Express)

"Rich and gorgeous as a plum cake, this is absorbing entertainment indeed" (Kate Saunders The Times)

"Taylor, with patient stealth, assembles a ring of enjoyably seedy or unprepossessing figures...What distinguishes it from generic thriller-writing is the author's knowledge of the period" (Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description

A gripping novel of romance and rivalry, gambling and greed, from acclaimed novelist and biographer D.J. Taylor - longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2011
