Reviews

Beautifully written, and beautifully deconstructed * Sunday Times * A gripping study - part reportage, part biography, part literary criticism - of the more intimate ramifications of a disaster which still haunts the public imagination * Sunday Telegraph * Wonderfully rich and multi-layered ... Full of fascinating details ... It is one of the few works of recent non-fiction that would benefit from a second, or even a third reading. Every sentence crackles with intelligence * Mail on Sunday * Masterful and timely * Daily Telegraph * An unusual and creative book ... in the end, the subject of this fascinating book is not just historical or biographical uncertainty, but psychological and moral ambiguity * Guardian * Wilson's biography is beautifully written and beautifully constructed * Sunday Times *
