Product Description:

Mr Weston's Good Wine

Review:

" Mr Weston's Good Wine is a book without parallel. It is an allegory, it is a bucolic farce, it is a religious (or anti-religious?) masterpiece" (A N Wilson Daily Telegraph)

"The greatest value of his work, though, is in showing that it is still possible to write about the primordial human experiences to which religion is a response...Very few 20th-century authors have the knack of writing convincingly of first and last things. A religious writer without any vestige of belief, Theodore Powys is one of them" (John Gray New Statesman)

"Grimly brilliant" (John Carey Sunday Times)

"[It is] generally considered his masterpiece" ( Washington Post)

"A writer who far outshone his contemporaries" ( Spectator)
