About the Author

Rosemary Hill is a writer and historian, and has published widely on 19th- and 20th-century cultural history.


"A magnificent biography, as sumptuous and intricate as anything Pugin built . . . a properly glorious monument."-John Carey, Sunday Times -- John Carey

"As a lucid work of architectural history and as the readable biography of a most protean and brilliant man, it is worthy of the best of his buildings."-Colm Toibin, Irish Times -- Colm Toibin

"A very remarkable book about a very remarkable man . . . This book will interest not only those who delight in architecture, but also anyone who is interested in the Victorian Age."-A. N. Wilson, Daily Mail -- A. N. Wilson

"An excellent and detailed biography . . . Pugin changed the face of England forever. This book can be recommended for its disciplined but convincing championship of the most important English architect of the nineteenth century."-Peter Ackroyd, The Times -- Peter Ackroyd

"Rosemary Hill has written a superb study of this true romantic and tragic original. It is scholarly, but intimate, warm and readable too, immediately becoming the standard work."-Stephen Bayley, Observer -- Stephen Bayley

"This is surely the best biography of a British architect yet written: an enthralling book."-Simon Bradley, Evening Standard -- Simon Bradley

"One of the great biographies of our day."-Michael J. Lewis, A. A. Files -- Michael J. Lewis

"Rosemary Hill is a wonderful writer. She has not only given us Pugin's story--the life of a hugely important British artist--she has placed his work in a rich and intelligently explained cultural context."-K. Anthony Appiah

-- K. Anthony Appiah

"Rosemary Hill's book is the first modern biography of Pugin, and it is a considerable feat both in its painstaking original research and the way in which Hill, deals with architectural history, relating Pugin personally to his buildings, justifying brilliantly her biographical approach."-Fiona MacCarthy, The New York Review of Books -- Fiona MacCarthy * New York Review of Books *
