Reviews

Named a Best Book of 2019 by The Sunday Times

"Nobody knows more than the erudite and entertaining Simon Winder. If you could plug your brain into his, you wouldn't need Google. Then again, your head might explode." --Liesl Schillinger, The New York Times Book Review

"Interlacing history and travelogue, this prose journey from Lake Constance up through the Low Countries is an exuberant, exhaustive paean to 'the richness and density of a region that is both the dozy back end of beyond, and central to the fate of humanity.'" --The New Yorker

"[Lotharingia is] a long cultural tour, led by a brilliantly witty guide who never stops talking, who constantly halts the group in the street to reminisce about his own experiences or digress into a wonderful anecdote, and who gets everyone into extraordinary places normally locked up." --Neal Ascherson, The New York Review of Books

"[Winder] is deeply read and endlessly curious, a man with the enviable ability to make one share his obsessions." --Michael Gorra, The Wall Street Journal
