|With incisive knowledge of the man and access to never-before-published letters, Sisman paints a fascinating portrait of this charismatic, contentious, contradictory character. The author examines Trevor-Roper''s middle-class upbringing in a house so empty of affection that it caused, as he put it, his "almost physical difficulty in expressing emotion.|
"Trevor-Roper seems like a character out of Waugh, though he and the Waughs hated each other, one of many feuds that make Sisman's biography entertaining and poignant." 01/16/2012
