Description: " Beautifully poised between comedy and dread ...splendidly, elegantly phrased." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "It takes a special kind of genius to be able to recreate such convincing early 19th-century prose... A bravura display of writing skill." - The Guardian "A first-rate historical novel that is also a novel of ideas--a taut, beautifully controlled short book with none of the windiness or costumed pageantry so often associated with fiction attempts to reanimate the past... [It is] the best of Golding's novels since Lord of the Flies ." - The New York Review of Books "As skillful and resonant as the best of William Golding's other novels, which are among the best written by any Englishman these past twenty-five years." - The New York Times Book Review " An extraordinary tour de force that has something in common with Melville's Billy Budd , Conrad's Nigger of the Narcissus and even Coleridge's The Ancient Mariner ... Provides readers with still another instance of William Golding's virtuosity and moral stamina." - Philadelphia Inquirer
