Reviews

  • Extraordinary and beautiful...the most exciting and ambitious work of non-fiction I have read in more than a decade

    Maggie Gee, Daily Telegraph
  • The book that changed my life... a constant companion

    Bill Bailey, Prospect Magazine
  • One of the year's most original and outstanding books...fascinating labyrinths of history and human experience, which he perceptively, intructively and absorbingly explores. This is a read to relish

    Financial Times
  • Theodore Zeldin's all-embracing history of our feelings throughout the ages [is] brilliantly original and unsettling... His scope is dazzling... A seductive and unusually thought provoking book

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Bubbling wit... Zeldin makes life exciting for the reader. It is like being on some careering fair-ground ride that whirls you from one limelit fragment of civilisation to the next at breakneck speed...gatecrashing all the cultures of the world

    Spectator
