Romantic

«The Romantic by William Boyd was the novel I enjoyed most this year. It's incredibly ambitious, its hero moving from Co Cork to London, then from Waterloo to Zanzibar, and at one point even joining the East Indian Army, but it was such an easy, indulgent read»

«The Romantic by William Boyd was the novel I enjoyed most this year. It's incredibly ambitious, its hero moving from Co Cork to London, then from Waterloo to Zanzibar, and at one point even joining the East Indian Army, but it was such an easy, indulgent read»

Sathnam Sanghera, The Times, Best Books of the Year

«[One of the] most enjoyable new novels I read this year . . . [it] offers deep pleasure to those who love novels, instruction to anyone setting out to write one»

Allan Massie, Scotsman, Best Books of 2022

«Boyd is as magically readable as ever, and, as always with his whole life novels, there is an invigorating air of spontaneity»

Telegraph

«Boyd's back, baby. The great writer of big, splashy (mostly) historical adventures has gone all guns blazing on this one . . . The pages brim with famous names and exotic locations - with Florentine palazzos, debtors' prisons, scandalous love affairs, Byron and the Battle of Waterloo . . . pure, joyful escapism»

The Times, Best Fiction Books of 2022

«It's tremendously entertaining and, as always with Boyd, virtually impossible to stop reading»

Daily Mirror

«A globe-trotting adventure through the 19th century»

i, Best Books for Autumn

«Boyd's pile-up of set piece escapades offers a huge amount of fun»

Daily Mail

«Boyd's books are so enjoyable that it's hard for us to resent the tricks being played on us, even as we find ourselves constantly reaching for Google, wanting to know what is and isn't real»

TLS

«There's a cornucopia of fine things here . . . The Romantic, always enjoyable, ranks with two of his best: The New Confessions and Any Human Heart. Both were intelligent and engrossing, novels you lived with. Both told a fine story very well. The Romantic does just that»

Scotsman

«A huge amount of fun»

Daily Mail (Ireland)

«One of our best contemporary storytellers»

Spectator

«A ripping yarn. And as such, it is pretty much faultless: as moreish as good chocolate, terrifically entertaining, and deeply humane»
