An informative and enlightening biography * The Sunday Times *
This racy tale is told in scholarly but lively detail by Alex Larman in a beautifully written first book * Daily Express *
The most comprehensive portrait of Rochester yet * Daily Mail *
Very good, assiduously researched and well written * Scotland on Sunday *
Challenges the accepted wisdom that has prevailed for centuries that Wilmot was a dastardly blighter in his conduct and a pornographer in his poetry, painting instead a portrait of one of English literature's brightest lights who died, as bright lights do, far too young * Good Book Guide *
