Críticas:

"Jack's eye for precise detail, his curiosity and his luminous intelligence shine through every piece. His is a kind of writing we are lucky to still have around" (Jackie Kay Scotsman)

"Elegiac rather than nostalgic... At the heart of the book are three magnificent essays" (The Economist)

"Superb" (Alexander Chancellor Spectator)

"Wonderful... Jack is a superb and diverse writer, with a mind and eyes and a nose for virtually everything... He's smart, proportionate, discerning and (rarest of rarities) decent. To me, this book is indispensable" (Richard Ford Guardian, Books of the Year)

"Ian Jack's superbly evocative essays are the ideal advertisement for the virtues of print journalism... superbly evocative" (Rachel Cooke The Observer)

Reseña del editor:

In this selection from over twenty years of reporting and writing, Ian Jack sets out to deal with contemporary Britain - from national disasters to football matches to obesity - but is always drawn back in time, vexed by the question of what came first.

In 'Women and Children First', watching the film Titanic leads into an investigation into the legend of Wallace Henry Hartley, the famous band leader of the doomed liner, while 'The 12.10 to Leeds', a magnificent report on the Hatfield rail crash, begins its hunt for clues in the eighteenth century in the search for those responsible. Further afield, he finds vestiges of a vanished Britain in the Indian subcontinent, meeting characters like maverick English missionary and linguist William Carey, credited with importing India's first steam engine.

Full of the style, knowledge and intimacy that makes his work so special, this collection is the perfect introduction to the work of one of the country's finest writers.

Descripción Vintage, 2009. Condición: New. As Scotland, Wales and England go their separate ways, what is left of Great Britain? Founding editor of the Independent on Sunday, now a columnist with the Guardian, Ian Jack is one of Britain's most insightful social commentators. This collection of his articles spans 20 years and ranges from the Titanic to consumerism, and reflects - often ruefully - on what it means to be British today. Nº de ref. del artículo: 211765
