Quotes from reviews of the book.
'A truly exceptional work, soaring in its scope, boundless in its interest, with an ambition matched only by its achievement... Strikes me as the kind of masterpiece that comes along only once or twice a decade.' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
'Might well be the book of the decade, not just for its lucid, lyrical prose but also its exquisite photography.' John Burnside, New Statesman
