Professional reviews

"Inspired by the true story of the first theatrical production of Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Christopher Nicholson paints a subtle and moving portrait of life’s little ironies, its disappointments and its desires. ‘Captivatingly original…a wonderful feat of storytelling, remarkable for its ability to wrench your heart without resorting to sentimentality.’ DAILY MAIL on The Elephant Keeper ‘Nicholson’s book is gentle, profound and sweet-natured’ OBSERVER on The Elephant Keeper"
