"Magnificent... Brown's biography will clearly be the Life for this generation" -- James Wood * Scotsman * "Frederick Brown, as might be expected of the biographer of Zola, -is at his strongest when dealing with the social and political background to Flaubert's life...This is the biography which will best help us to understand Flaubert's reactions to the ceaseless political turmoil of his life" -- Julian Barnes * New York Review of Books * "Very rewarding... few men have been more truly extraordinary than Flaubert, to whom Brown takes us as close as it is possible to be other than in the flesh... The best biographies are fine books, and this is one of the very best. It leaves the reader with a whole world to think about and an enlivened mind with which to do the thinking" * Literary Review * "Wonderfully rich and enjoyable" * Sunday Telegraph * "Brown's book will win Flaubert many new or returning readers... Funny, racy, gossipy and erudite by turns." * Daily Telegraph *
