The Kit-Cat Club: Friends Who Imagined a Nation
Description:
'The decades after the Civil Wars have been rich pickings for cultural historians. These were the years of coffee houses and clubs, an atmosphere captured in Ophelia Field's wonderrful THE KIT-KAT CLUB.' Dominic Sandbrook, Daily Telegraph (Book of the Year) Christian Tyler, Financial Times (Book of the Year) 'Field is meticulous in describing the literary and other artistic achievements of the wits in the club: but the fascination of this book lies in the tale she tells of their social advancement and, to an extent, of the way the club altered manners and attitudes to class around the country.' Literary Review 'In a general book such as this, with such broad general themes, the details matter. Here Field has succeeded admirably. She has a native gift for historical retrieval so that we see the past in close-up, as it were, as well as in wide view.' The Times 'After reading this stimulating book, it is shocking to realise that the Kit-Cat Club has had to wait so long for its influence to be recognised. Field offers rich compensation, in a book that is both instructive and engrossingly readable.' Guardian (Book of the Week) 'What particularly distinguishes this book is the humane perspective in which the writer places her protagonists!As an essay in group biography her book presents an authoritative portrait of a genuinely revolutionary era.' Sunday Telegraph 'Elegantly written!this deeply researched book is a fitting memorial to a remarkable body of men who contributed so much to British politics and culture.' Sunday Times 'Highly intelligent! Field argues persuasively that the club transformed both politics and English cultural identity!' Observer 'Wonderfully readable and impeccably researched.' Sunday Telegraph 'It is testament to Field's skill that the members of the Club come to life in such vivid and dynamic ways. There is a great deal of panache and pungency alongside the unfussy explication of the finer points of Georgian political intrigue.' Scotland on Sunday 'The sort of brainy, literate history that most publishers have forsworn. It reminds you of an England where values were not determined by retailers.' New Statesman 'Bold and hugely entertaining book [written] with wit and verve!Field's identification with the Whigs gives rise to some startling and maybe salutary rearrangements of the cultural furniture.' Standpoint 'Ophelia Field has written an often engaging book, with plenty to say about the emergence of the Whig hegemony, and about the part played in this emergence by various members of the Kit-Cat Club. It offers interesting insights into the lives of some great individuals.' Henry Power, TLS
