Praise

"Symons’s biography of a little-known writer named Frederick Rolfe is unique in biographical literature in bringing the reader in on how the biographer knows what he knows about his subject; and in owning up to what he doesn’t know or feels cannot be known. ‘The Quest for Corvo’ is biography in the form of a detective story, and as such it is riveting….The surest formula for a masterpiece biography—of which there are not that many—is an extraordinary human being writing about a great one. In ‘The Quest for Corvo’ we have an utterly charming man writing on a madly eccentric one….A slender book, an odd book, a completely original book, [it] also represents a new method of writing biography that has never been copied."  —Joseph Epstein, The Wall Street Journal
