Praise

“[An] enthralling biography…utterly absorbing.”
—The Atlantic Monthly

“Excellent…wry, urbane, and laced with a gentle, affectionate irony—exactly the right tone for a historical monument who really was monumental….Jenkins makes Gladstone’s life intelligible, affecting…entertaining.”
—The Boston Sunday Globe

“A question that Jenkins’s biography raises for the reader: why is it so much fun to read about Victorian politics?…An exhaustive, permanent biography, whose greatest virtue is its extraordinary worldliness. Jenkins has a bred-in-the-bone sense, almost unique among political biographers, of politics as improvisation, game, and even theatre.”
—The New Yorker
