A Quiet Masterpiece,
This review is from: The Tortoise And The Hare (VMC) (Paperback)
There's not much I can add to the other positive reviews; I simply want to reinforce their enthusiasm for this quiet masterpiece. Very much in the same vein as Elizabeth Taylor and Anita Brookner, I find Jenkins' writing to be even more subtle and profound.
I would also highly recommend Jenkins' biography of Jane Austen, which has become a classic of the genre.Jane Austen: A Biography
