Because Thomas Hardy's poetry and fiction are so closely associated with Wessex, it is easy to forget that he was, in his own words, half a Londoner, moving between country and capital throughout his life. This self-division, Mark Ford says, can be traced not only in works explicitly set in London but in his most regionally circumscribed novels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Thomas Hardy: Half a Londoner offers fresh and exciting analysis of Hardy's novels and poems, when they are viewed from the perspective of Hardy's London experiences.--Simon Gatrell, University of Georgia
As Thomas Hardy: Half a Londoner shows in penetrating detail, there was another side to Hardy that grew out of his time in London, far away from the fields of Higher Bockhampton or the rows of his ancestors in Stinsford's village churchyard, colored his mental landscape and had a profound effect on his work.--D. J. Taylor"Wall Street Journal" (11/24/2016)
