The Perfect Summer: Dancing into Shadow in 1911
'An accomplished and engaging piece of social history' (Daily Telegraph 20060603)'[Nicolson] sweeps across voices and classes to assemble a mosaic of sunlit impressions' (Independent: Boyd Tonkin 20060618)Listed as number three of six in the 'Bookseller's Chart' by Phoebe Bentick of Henry Stokes & Co. (The Times 20060617)'With the gifts of a great storyteller, [Nicolson] rekindles a vision of a time when the sun shone, but cast long shadows.' (Waterstone's Books Quarterly 20060617)"Nicolson on swimwear from Victorian times through Brigitte Bardot to today. " (The Spectator 20060531)'Juliet Nicolson has taken this "perfect summer" as the backdrop for an ambitious work of multiple biography, which sets the extravagance of the upper classes against the increasingly desperate lives of the poor.' (Observer 20060521)'I wanted to evoke the full vivid richness of how it smelt, looked, sounded, tasted and felt to be alive in England during the months of such a summer' (The Lady 20060521)'Juliet Nicolson does not pretend to offer a close political analysis, but rather a thoroughly entertaining portrait of the period, full of memorable detail' (The Spectator 20060512)'There is an unpretentious directness about Nicolson's approach to her subjects that gives the book a freshness and vitality. Happily, she also has an eye for the amusing or the ironic.' (The Scotsman, Rachel Billington 20060515) 'A fascinating read... I did indeed feel transported' (Mail on Sunday: Antonia Fraser 20060601)'Hugely interesting... It's also - and this is a compliment - as page-turning as a novel' (Guardian Holiday Read Choice: Joanna Trollope 20060501)'Nicolson writes with grace and humour' (Guardian Holiday Read Choice: Antonia Fraser 20060630)'A charming mix of gossip column, commonplace book and popular history, sure to delight readers for many summers to come.'   (International Express: Michael Arditti 20061001)'Elegant and witty ... an enjoyable read without pretensions from a rather well-connected writer' (Jad Adams, Sunday Telegraph / Seven 20061001)'Nicolson conjures a moment when the unchanged rituals of English existence began to collide with modern life' (Olivia Laing, Observer 20061001)'She cuts a slice through Edwardian life at the end of the Edwardian age to create a richly atmospheric read' (Kate Chisholm, Daily Mail 20061001)'Nicolson has pulled together many strands in a graceful evocation of one particularly long summer' (Evening Standard 20061001)'Entertaining and informative, it's packed with unforgettable characters and vivid descriptions' (Sainsbury's Magazine 20061001)'This is a peach of a book. It is full of good things, sparkling, elegant and often funny' (Jane Ridley, Literary Review )'Society history written with skill, a sharp eye and a sense of humour' (TLS, Susie Harries )'A clever, insightful and ultimately moving account' (BBC History )'A tiny chapter of English history ... a perfect lightness of touch' (Katie Law, Evening Standard )'Elegantly poignant ... Nicolson has an eye for prescient anecdotes'   (Ruth Scurr,The Times )A wonderfully evocative portrait of english society on the brink of a new world order. Full of brilliant vignettes of the people and the pleasures that distracted them. Juliet Nicolson has invented a new kind of social history. (Tina Brown )'Rich and marvellously researched' (Barry Humphries )'A cleverly crafted story of the hot, frenetic summer of 1911 which works because of the sparkling writing' (Jane Ridley, Literary Review )
