He writes for the London Review of Books and has just taken up a lectureship at the University of Southampton.


Both as a work of history and as an upmarket version of Who Do You Think You Are? this book is a great success -- Dominic Sandbrook * The Sunday Times *
A fascinating blend of biography and history, which poignantly evokes the pain and loss attendant on exile, in both wartime and peace. -- Ian Thomson * Daily Telegraph *
In Finding Poland, about his grandmother's deportation from Poland, he has a cracking story which he tells with compassion, verve, and the professional historian's restraint and accuracy -- Bridget Hourican * Irish Times *
Moving book...Scholarly without being oppressive, Kelly's book reminds us how millions of people in the last century were uprooted by war and ideology, their expectations blown to the winds, their horizons utterly altered. -- Dominic Sandbrook * Sunday Times *
