  • The best Kipling biography yet written... Gilmour's account of this driven man shines with intelligence

  • An enthralling biography of a mind...essential reading for anyone who cares about how a writer finds, and passionately lives, his subject

    Daily Telegraph
  • A fine, fair and generous work... Gilmour's celebrated life of Curzon demonstrated his mastery of imperial nuance and esoteric character, and he brings to this book just the right combination of empathy, distaste and fastidious detachment

    New Statesman
  • A splendid and much needed reappraisal of Kipling...outstanding for its precise, elegant writing

  • A superb short biography...a beautifully written, touching and occasionally very funny book

    Andrew Roberts, Daily Mail
