Andrew Motion's first work of biography won a Somerset Maugham Award in 1987. "A biographical triumph". (Observer). "The story of the three Lamberts is as cruel and horrifying as any Greek tragedy...Its portrayal of the way in which the Lamberts instinctively yet unintentionally assisted in the destruction of their own offspring makes for truly compulsive reading". (Harpers and Queen). "Motion's project is not just to tell the story of passing generations, which he does very readably and well, but necessarily also to describe and evaluate aspects of English culture - revivalist painting, classical music in the Twenties and Thirties, the foundation of a native ballet, pop music in the Sixties - which he does with considerable confidence and resource". (London Review of Books).
