Review Text

The Waughs have a way with them that would intrigue and enchant any modern, but Edmund Campion, Elizabeth's Martyr-Saint would do a proper job even though painted by a brush lacking Waugh's natural flair. A happy combination this: England's most brilliant scholar-saint and her most brilliant modern pen. While it is a Roman Catholic book and a Religious Book, don't let it miss the Biography table. It will undoubtedly be overlooked by many Waugh admirers if it is not there, and by Catholic and Protestant alike who enjoy a treat. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
