Anmeldelser

«Winder is our guide with delicious festive wit, and equal erudition»

Diarmaid MacCulloch, Tablet

«A master of the art of making history both funny and fun . . . Once again he brings Germany bouncing back to life»

Simon Jenkins, author of <i>A Short History of Europe</i>

«Weird and wonderful . . . No Briton has written better than Winder about Europe»

Daniel Johnson, Sunday Times

«There is so much fascinating detail in this book that it is hard to put down . . .»

Michael Burleigh, author of <i>The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: A History of Now</i>

«Winder looks afresh at the long arc of European history, with its perpetual interplay between defiant local units and grandiose attempts at unifying schemes»

Stephen Moss, Guardian

«The high plateau of my year was my catching up with Simon Winder. Danubia and Germania are an idiosyncratic, often funny fusion of history writing, travel writing and disrespect»

Sir Tom Stoppard, TLS

«Brings to mind PJ O'Rourke's Holidays in Hell or anything by Bill Bryson»

Gerard DeGroot, The Times

«A heady blend of jolly travel stories, weird German aristocrats, obscure baroque altarpieces and horrendous sectarian massacres. There are plenty of serious points here, but Winder never forgets that history is meant to be fun»

Dominic Sandbrook, <i>The Sunday Times</i>, Best History Books of the year 2019

«An absolutely wonderful hybrid of hilarious travel writing and incisive historical analysis . . . Lotharingia follows on the acclaimed Danubia and Germania»

Quillette

«It's not so much history, as a long cultural tour, led by a brilliantly witty guide . . . There are a great many jokes and irreverent hoots, in case everything gets too earnest . . .»

Neal Ascherson, <i>The New York Review of Books</i>

«Simon Winder has created a genre all of his own, the history-travelogue-memoir, which he uses adeptly to explore the hinterlands between France and Germany and their centuries of dynasties, discord and discontent . . .»

Judith Flanders, author of <i>The Victorian House </i>and <i>Christmas: A Biography</i>
