Thanks – an interesting review with some generous praise and some well-found criticisms! Dr Darling rightly regrets the lack of a bibliography: space prevented it, but the full version is to be found on my website at http://www.pevsnerinfo.cswebsites.org/default.aspx?page=27392 , and there will be a select bibliography in the paperback, which is published on Feb.7 2013. She mentions that she would like to know more about Francesca Wilson: an interesting PhD thesis came out rather too late for me to make more than the most cursory use of it: ‘Place, life histories and the politics of relief: episodes in the life of Francesca Wilson, humanitarian educator activist’, Siân Lliwen Roberts,(2010) – – she might like to chase it up at http://etheses.bham.ac.uk/848/
Dear Ms Harries,
The review is now on line
Susie Harries, Nikolaus Pevsner : The Life (London: Chatto & Windus, 2011)—Reviewed by Elizabeth Darling, Oxford Brookes University
Thanks for the excellent Pevsner bibliography. Are you sure however about :
The Planning of the English Country House (Birkbeck, 1961).
Is it not _he Planning of the Elizabethan Country House_?
By the way I find this means of communication inconvenient and irksome.
Many thanks – I have told her she might get a copy from the publishers.
Certainly – I remember meeting Elizabeth Darling after a very interesting talk she gave on inter-war narratives of modernity, at a conference at Warwick University a couple of years ago. I’ll get in touch with the publishers.
One of our reviewers, Dr Elizabeth Darling (http://www.history.brookes.ac.uk/staff/prof.asp?ID=595), alerted me to the publication of Nikolaus Pevsner: The Life.
If you are interested in a review in Cercles (http://www.cercles.com/review/reviews.html) with a wide audience in the USA on the H-Net (in this particular instance H-Albion), could you perhaps persuade your publishers to send her a review copy ?
Her address is :
