Pre-eminent author and art historian Simon Schama has written widely on art for many years to great acclaim. In Hang-Ups, a personal selection of his articles from, amongst others, The New Yorker, appears in Britain for the very first time. Brilliantly and lucidly written by one of the most singular voices in non-fiction, this volume of provocative and often idiosyncratic essays makes hugely satisfying reading for lovers of both art and social history. In contains pieces on artists as diverse as David Hockney, Rembrandt and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and on such subjects as the unforgettable peculiarity of Stanley Spencer. From the author whose writing has been called sublime and whose ability to bring art and history vividly to life has earned him admiration worldwide, Hang-Ups is Schamas rallying cry for the art lover to look at familiar works of art and their artists and embrace a new way of seeing.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Simon Schama is a historian of remarkable gifts and achievements." * Spectator *
"The really appealing thing about Schama is... the stylishness of his storytelling. The master of the impressionistic aside, he can summon up a whole era with just a few choice words." * Sunday Times *
"Schama combines an awesome breadth of knowledge with a real ability to communicate ideas in a manner stripped of pomposity." * Daily Express *
