Reviews

"[The Duke's Children], edited by the American scholar Steven Amarnick, now appears in paperback, as an Oxford World's Classic. At long last, all the children of The Duke's Children are fully born. [...] Entombed for more than a century, the extended, original "Duke's Children" arrives as a stroke of good fortune. The inclusion of 65,000 additional words allows for a statelier pace, a suitable spaciousness wherein a headstrong Plantagenet can reconcile himself to the invincible unreason of young love." - Brad Leithauser, Wall Street Journal
