About the Author:

Simon Schama is University Professor of Art History and History at Columbia University. His award-winning books, translated into fifteen languages, include Citizens, Landscape and Memory, Rembrandt's Eyes, A History of Britain, The Power of Art, Rough Crossings, The American Future, The Face of Britain and The Story of the Jews: Finding the Words (1000 BCE - 1492). His art columns for the New Yorker won the National Magazine Award for criticism and his journalism has appeared regularly in the Guardian and the Financial Times where he is Contributing Editor. He has written and presented forty films for BBC2 on subjects as diverse as Tolstoy, American politics and John Donne.

Review:

"The most stimulating and surprising writing here is on cooking and eating... Diverting personal history" * Daily Telegraph * "Wilfully miscellaneous but addictively readable volume... He is clever, versatile and extremely likeable" -- John Sutherland * Financial Times * "This sparkling, effervescent collection bridges the gap between scholarly and popular writing... It is excellent holiday reading: dip into this between the sea and the bar and you will find a subtle and amusing companion" -- Richard Ormrod * The Spectator * "Entrancing... A bedside book of rich insights... Enjoy" -- Peter Preston * The Observer * "His eloquence is on magnificent display in this new book: a delightful collection of journalistic essays... The length of his book, overflowing with purple prose (though very rarely at the cost of substance), demonstrates that, often, Schama does not know when to stop. But in this case, maybe that is not such a bad thing" -- James Grant * The Independent on Sunday *
