MEDIA REVIEWS
'Don't miss Leo Abse's Daniel Defoe. He's as original as Defoe himself.' - Michael Foot 'Leo Abse is always brave, always perceptive and usually right; doubters will be wise to hesitate before pronouncing; over the last half-century, time has been in the habit of vindicating his judgement.' - Matthew Parris 'This book presents its subject in an entirelyfresh light, making it an exhilarating and enthralling read. I was gripped from beginning to end.' - Anthony Howard 'With wit, insight and erudition, Leo Abse illuminates hidden corners of the too-often overlooked Defoe, and casts a contemporary eye on Defoe's prodigious achievement, not least his bold eighteenth-century view of marriage as licensed whoredom. A riveting read.' - Brenda Maddox 'Leo Abse, perhaps the most humane and significant back-bench MP from any political party in the twentieth century, civilised Britain by forcing through a series of historic changes on the laws on homosexuality and divorce... now, ever indefatigable, his latest book gives a new dimension to the understanding of Defoe. Abse shows how Defoe transcended his private agonies to become a great public man.' - Peter Oborne
