Anmeldelser

«What makes Steeple Chasing so compelling - and it is a wonderful book; thoughtful and challenging - ... is Ross's essential kindness, his unfailing empathy with the people he meets on his pilgrimage.»

Daily Telegraph

«A charming odyssey . . . in this lyrical love letter to churches Ross reminds us there is something worth saving and people who will make the effort.»

The Times

«His book is a delicious treat, and one that both believers and sceptics will enjoy.»

Financial Times

«Reading a book is another reciprocal act: if it's good, it stays with you. Ross's readers will have his words humming through them for a long time.»

Spectator

«Lovely, lyrical, whimsical, elegiac ... Ross has a gift for making you feel you're there with him, just as awed as he is.»

Times Literary Supplement

«Ross has always had a quiet charm, and it is perhaps displayed best in this book. . . it is properly interested in humanity, especially in its complexity.»

The Scotsman

«Steeple Chasing is, as you might expect from Ross, itself a beautiful object, full of delicacy and deliberation in the writing. . .a fascinating, beautifully written book full of both the strange and the terrible, but also full of grace and love.»

The Herald

«Beautifully observed and evocatively written.»

Country Life

«Never less than fascinating.»
