Recensione:

“Engrossing”
audio review Karen Robinson, The Sunday Times 9/5/99

“A dazzling achievement: an extraordinary story told by a phenomenally gifted writer. Within its gripping narrative lies a wonderfully rich reconstruction of the world of the Hanoverian elite, its virtues and vices wittily and movingly related.”
Simon Schama

“Aristocrats is my favourite kind of history: on the one hand it’s lucid and scholarly, on the other hand it reads like a novel. I hated to finish it.”
Antonia Fraser

Dalla quarta di copertina:

READ BY SERENA GORDON

'Aristocrats' is the true story of the four Lennox sisters and their turbulent Georgian lives. Caroline elopes with a brilliant politician; Emily marries a senior peer but gives birth, along with 21 other children, to one of Ireland’s most celebrated revolutionaries; Louisa marries Ireland’s richest man, and the youngest of the four, Sarah, flirts with the future King of England, George III, and embarks on a series of scandalous affairs.

Now a major BBC drama, starring Serena Gordon ('Insiders'), Heraldine Somerville ('Cracker'), Ann-Marie Duff ('Amongst Women') and Jodhi May ('Last of the Mohicans') as the four sisters.

“A dazzling achievement: an extraordinary story told by a phenomenally gifted writer. Within its gripping narrative lies a wonderfully rich reconstruction of the world of the Hanoverian elite, its virtues and vices wittily and movingly related.”
