• "A subtle and captivating fiction"

    The Times
  • "An extraordinary work whose achievements are almost Wagnerian in scale"

    Daily Mail
  • "A thoroughly engrossing read... A.N. Wilson offers a plethora of fascinating ideas on politics, philosophy and, above all, the music of Wagner... Winnie and Wolf vividly brings to life a place, a time and an extraordinary family"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "Deeply clever and gripping... Vividly presented and immaculately researched"

  • " Winnie and Wolf tells a convincing story; it is an emotionally fraught account of German Kultur at war and peace... A.N. Wilson's art is to create a richly chromatic drama of a Romantic Germany, darkened by the atonal experiments of Schoenberg, Hindemith, and Leverkühn, and the murderous ideas of Wolf"
