  • Beautifully written and highly entertaining...pacey, conversational and unpredictable... Like an earthier Bill Bryson and, whisper it, funnier

    Independent on Sunday
  • Hilarious and deliciously cruel about Denmark... A surprising, passionate enquiry into this most enigmatic of men...should not be missed

  • Booth's control of his material shines through. The mix of right-on comedic travelogue and expert disquisition is engaging... Highly recommended

    Times Literary Supplement
  • A clever book... Manages to function as both coherent biography and literary criticism... An astute, erudite book

  • A romp in the pleasing company of master and examples of the 'following in the footsteps' genre go, this one is livelier, wittier, better informed and more diligent than average
