BeschreibungAcclaim for Carolly Erickson " Carolly Erickson is one of the most accomplished and successful historical biographers writing in English." The Times Literary Supplement The First Elizabeth " Even more readable and absorbing than the justly praised works of Tuchman and Fraser. A vivid and eminently readable portrait of history s favorite Tudor." The New York Times Book Review " A masterpiece of narrative, a story so absorbing it is as hard to put down as a fine novel." Los Angeles Times Book Review Alexandra " Gifted . . . breathless . . . heartbreaking . . . Erickson excels." Chicago Tribune Josephine " An intimate, richly detailed, and candid portrait . . . [Erickson s] scholarly insights combine superbly with a mastery of period manners more often found in the best historical fiction." Kirkus Reviews Mistress Anne " Carolly Erickson is a most admirable biographer, and this book is highly enjoyable as well as being reliable and acute; indeed, it is popular historical biography at its best." The Times (London)
