Product Details

Praise

[A] magnificent, authoritative, compassionate, ironic, funny, and tragic book, in which emotional and intellectual developments in private persons are seen to be now parallel to, now conditioned by, economic and political actions.
— The Times Literary Supplement

An impressive and unusual historical novel.
— Michael Holroyd

Hughes does not write with a researcher’s smug wisdom-after-the-event but with an artist’s power of recording the past as if it were the living present…The long passages on the Munich beer-hall putsch of 1923, Hitler’s escape, hiding and capture are a tour de force of dreamlike action.
— Time

[The Fox in the Attic] has many virtues, many strong and compelling moments; it continues Hughes’s particular method of tracing the misapprehensions, confusions, and wrong-headedness of people who are either not able to grasp the complex currents of the world they live in, or are blinded by the obsessions of child mentality or political fanaticism or religion.
— John Crowley, The Boston Review
