Reviews

Mr Weston's Good Wine is a book without parallel. It is an allegory, it is a bucolic farce, it is a religious (or anti-religious?) masterpiece -- A N Wilson * Daily Telegraph *
The greatest value of his work, though, is in showing that it is still possible to write about the primordial human experiences to which religion is a response...Very few 20th-century authors have the knack of writing convincingly of first and last things. A religious writer without any vestige of belief, Theodore Powys is one of them -- John Gray * New Statesman *
Grimly brilliant -- John Carey * Sunday Times *
[It is] generally considered his masterpiece * Washington Post *
A writer who far outshone his contemporaries * Spectator *
