Rezension: 'One of the two or three most important books on Ruskin to appear in the last thirty years.' James Dearden, former Master of the Guild of St George 'The story of the ill-fated marriage of John Ruskin and Effie Gray has intrigued and appalled generations of those with an interest in the midnineteenth century. Robert Brownell s account of events is by far the most thorough yet. In almost forensic detail, and in a remarkably gripping way, he re-examines every pertinent document from diaries and personal letters (many printed here in full for the first time) to contemporary legal papers and offers a new and carefully weighted interpretation of the background, developing drama and ultimate conclusion of one of the century s most interesting scandals. His book can surely lay claim to being the last word on this aptly titled Marriage of Inconvenience.' Stephen Wildman, Director, Ruskin Library, University of Lancaster 'Brownell has the story-teller's gift as well as a love for his evidence: this may be a scholarly tour-de-force but for sheer readability he has produced a cross between a John Grisham novel and an episode of New Tricks... And how refreshing at last to have some sanity and measure of well-evidenced truth in an episode that has bedevilled Ruskin's reputation for over 150 years.' Howard Hull Director, the Ruskin Foundation
