Praise

“A very great book.”—Robert Harris

Praise for the British edition of Fathers and Sons:

“A wonderful critical-loving job…a stupendous story.” —V.S. Naipaul

“Literary skill really does seem to be hereditary….Altogether an extraordinary story, admirably told, which leaves you thinking at the end what a remarkable family the Waughs are.” —Geoffrey Wheatcroft, Daily Mail

“A remarkable work of family history, exceptional for its honesty, inventiveness, humour and for the beguiling individuality of its author’s voice…Alexander Waugh proves himself outrageously graceful and accomplished with a talent that needs no help at all from his illustrious forebearers.” –Selina Hastings, Literary Review

“All fathers and sons should read it.” –Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times

“Told with humour and panache, with considerable inside knowledge and a perception that makes this remarkable chronicle a delight to read.” –Spectator

“Waugh relights the family’s literary torch…Huge fun.” –Tatler

“Written with wit, great shrewdness and without a trace of sentimentality.” –William Boyd, Guardian
