Scribble, Scribble, Scribble Reviews


"The most stimulating and surprising writing here is on cooking and eating... Diverting personal history" * Daily Telegraph *
"Wilfully miscellaneous but addictively readable volume... He is clever, versatile and extremely likeable" -- John Sutherland * Financial Times *
"This sparkling, effervescent collection bridges the gap between scholarly and popular writing... It is excellent holiday reading: dip into this between the sea and the bar and you will find a subtle and amusing companion" -- Richard Ormrod * The Spectator *
"Entrancing... A bedside book of rich insights... Enjoy" -- Peter Preston * The Observer *
"His eloquence is on magnificent display in this new book: a delightful collection of journalistic essays... The length of his book, overflowing with purple prose (though very rarely at the cost of substance), demonstrates that, often, Schama does not know when to stop. But in this case, maybe that is not such a bad thing" -- James Grant * The Independent on Sunday *
