Reviews

"It is a magnificent story of a magnificent man, one of the finest biographies of the twentieth century, as its subject was one of the finest human beings of the nineteenth." Anthony Burgess "A moving and dramatic story... sometimes tragic, often comic, ultimately triumphant." The Times "A biography that possesses many of the virtues of James Murray himself - grace, humour, intelligence, curiosity, and scholarship." Time "In her vivid biography, Murray's granddaughter brings his remarkable personality to life, and provides an unexpectedly fascinating account of the O.E.D.'s long and difficult birth." Times Literary Supplement "A gripping, engaging story; endearing, too. The daily round of a big Victorian family, with its jokes, games, and treasured seaside holidays, is entrancingly evoked." The Sunday Times"
