About the Author

A.N. Wilson grew up in Staffordshire and was educated at Rugby and New College, Oxford. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he holds a prominent position in the world of literature and journalism. He is a prolific and award-winning biographer and celebrated novelist. He lives in North London.


Wilson's book is as much a factual account of Forster's life as a piece of historical fiction... Wilson's achievement is to impart a restrained imaginative power that makes its extremes seem credible. * Guardian * Wilson's wit and erudition are much in evidence * Sunday Times (Ireland) * Praise for The Book of the People (2015): Believe it or not, this is a work of genius - The Times; Wilson's delightful and unexpectedly moving book is characterised by intellectual humility - New Statesman; An elegant and insightful book * The Independent * Praise for The Potter's Hand (2012): A rich and rather wonderful novel... It is one of these books which gives the impression of having matured in the imagination for years. One can't, in a short review, do justice to its abundance. It is a cornucopia of a novel... wide in scope, rich in detail, and deep in understanding - Scotsman; Full of fascinating historical detail... [A. N. Wilson's] most obvious fictional flourish, which sees a Cherokee transported to the potteries, is as incredible as it is romantic... a rather magnificent achievement - Daily Mail; This is a splendid story, vividly told * Economist *
