Product Description:

Towers of Trebizond

Review:

"An utter delight. The most brilliantly witty and captivatingly charming book 1 have read since I can't remember when."

"Rose Macaulay's "The Towers of Trebizond" is an utter delight, the most brilliantly witty and captivatingly charm-ing book I have read since I can't remember when... . Fantasy, farce, high comedy, lively travel material, delicious japes at many aspects of the frenzied modern world, and a succession of illuminating thoughts about love, sex, life, organized churches and religion are all tossed together with enchanting results." --"The New York Times
"
"Novelist, poet, journalist, wit, and world-class diner out, Rose Macaulay was one of the most popular writers and personalities in England from the 1920s until her death, in 1958. The ebullient Macaulay was friends, it seemed with everyone. Rupert Brooke, Gilbert Murray, Harold Nicolson, John Betjeman, and Virginia Woolf were only a few of those who prized an intelligence that, though 'acid, ' in Nicolson's words, was 'citrous merely and never poisoned.'" --Brooke Allen, "The Atlantic Monthly"

"Macaulay s meticulous, understated storytelling traces the hairline crack between laughter and tears, finds grand universals in ordinary foibles, and speaks, without blush or wink, of sin and repentance." "Paste Magazine"

"A small miracle of a novel." "Salon"

"""It is an extraordinary novel, being not just a witty and lyrically written account of the journey of a heart and soul, but also, a beguiling history lesson, a masterclass in acute social observation, and a remarkable polemic on female emancipation and religious sectarianism." "The Independent""
