Review:

A Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2007

"This survey of a vast field is elegantly managed, with agreeable readings along the way."
The Guardian

"Bradford is formidable, bracing and wildly stimulating"
The Telegraph


"The Novel Now shows that Richard Bradford is a very sharp and unillusioned critic; that he is his own man."
Martin Amis


Praise for Richard Bradford s previous works:
For
Lucky Him: The Life of Kingsley Amis
"sharp and convincing written with magisterial skill"
The Daily Telegraph
"perceptive intelligent written with an unstrident ease and sympathy that would surely have pleased his subject" The Spectator


For First Boredom, Then Fear: The Life of Philip Larkin
"quite the best book [on him] yet to appear a masterful analysis Bradford is in such complete command of his subject matter, nothing escapes him. It is as if he has had access to Larkin s very thought processes. A great biography of a great artistic genius. Utterly magnificent"
The Daily Express
"extraordinary quite the best thing to appear on Larkin in ages"
The London Evening Standard

Review:

"The Novel Now shows that Richard Bradford is a very sharp and unillusioned critic; that he is his own man."
