"Dazzling.....there is an exhilarating narrative sweep that takes the story across the centuries, but above all there is a unity of theme and place that roots it in English history and the English landscape....This is an enviably good book" THE SPECTATOR "Clever, moving and put together with expert craftsmanship, THE GENTRY is the most enjoyable book I've read this year" FINANCIAL TIMES "Masterly..... a wonderfully evocative work of historical rehabilitation" SUNDAY TELEGRAPH "A consummate writer and keen-eyed reader of landscape, Nicolson gives us mouth-watering descriptions...a fantastic book". TIME OUT "[Nicolson] paints a fascinating picture of forced marriages, violent deaths, corruption, loyalties, betrayals and, ultimately, a lost way of life... the book has flashes of insight and empathy to remind us that each family had its own individual dramas as well as being symbols of their time." DAILY MAIL "Nicolson's fascinating and brilliantly written examination of the gentry across seven centuries....creates a vivid portrait gallery of a class at the heart of English society .....wonderfully readable" SUNDAY TIMES
