"She has put us on notice that we talk about race by not talking about it"

The Guardian

SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD 2019

'This is a book of wonders' Sunday Times

'Spellbinding and intelligent' Financial Times

'Extraordinary and engrossing' Spectator

It was the most extraordinary year. In a book brimming with poetry and nature writing, biography and adventure, Adam Nicolson walks in the footsteps of Coleridge, Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy during the months in the late 1790s they spent together in the Quantock Hills.

Out of it came The Ancient Mariner, 'Kubla Khan', Lyrical Ballads and 'Tintern Abbey'; Coleridge's unmatched hymns to friendship and fatherhood; Wordsworth's revolutionary verses and paeans to the unity of soul and cosmos, love and understanding. In short, a poetry that sought to remake the world.
