Here's what you say about us...

Gaskell has set out to introduce non-students to literature and to encourage everyone to widen their reading and develop their own talent as writers. He is eminently successful and I was left with a desire to read many of the works he discusses.
Helen Moll

You get a real sense of the writer as an enthusiastic and discerning teacher - he even made me enjoy reading about writers I don't like!
Gail Wylie, University of Edinburgh

Stimulating ... A truly inspiring book.
