9780719548413: Robert Byron

Robert Byron, who died young in the War, was the foremost travel writer of his age, acclaimed especially for 'The Road to Oxiana'. He was also a pioneer of Byzantine history, fought to save Georgian London, and was one of the first voices raised against fascism. Patrick Leigh Fermor readily admitted to being under his spell, and to Nancy Mitford he was the funniest man alive. This is the first biography of him; it draws on his unique archive and throws fascinating new light on the gilded circle of which he was part.

About the Author:

James Knox was educated at Eton and thereafter at Cambridge where he read History of Art and at INSEAD where he gained an MBA. He was for ten years Publisher of 'The Spectator' before setting up his own consultancy to advise on commissioning works of art for public and private spaces. He lives in London.

Review:

"James Knox has made good use of the Byron family archive, and his account covers all aspects of Byron's life." -- The Sunday Telegraph Knox writes with "sympathy, [and] dry wit." -- The Sunday Telegraph "Knox has a keen appreciation of the architectural zeitgeist as any writer on Byron must." -- The New Statesman 20031027 "Diligently researched and neatly written." -- The Independent on Sunday 20031027 "A biography that is at once intimate, entertaining, and detached." -- The Financial Times 20031025 "It is difficult to write a biography of such a precious person without becoming mannered oneself, but Knox managed without becoming the period cliche that is his subject." -- The Times 20040605 "James Knox's impeccable biography of a real sparkler." -- Country Life 20031023 "[Robert Byron] comes across in this lively biography as a brilliantly eclectic, original and prickly genius." -- Sunday Telegraph 20040613 "I do love him [Robert Byron] when he comes into his distant own as a prematurely eccentric traveller ... Knox is especially good on RB's ferocious dedication to Georgian architecture." -- Vera Rule, Guardian 20040612 'An entertaining biography of a very entertaining man' -- Manchester Evening News 20040904
