H. C. Frend New York Review of Books The most reliable and lucid account available of Julian's haunting obsession...An extraordinarily good book about an extraordinary man. -- George Steiner London Times Packed with skillfully deployed information and remarkable insights...The picture is drawn with an incisive vigor which is completely convincing, and with unusual elegance of style. -- J.
