According to Queeney
In 1764, the great Samuel Johnson, irascible genius, unparalleled wit and toast of all society, is plagued by ill health and has become jaded by his bickering dependants.
"This is a wise book of small prose miracles...we see Johnson and his friends in unexpected and unfamiliar ways which are nevertheless convincing and authentic. I did not think anyone could do this, and still have no idea how Bainbridge pulled it off."
"Poigant, pierced with truth, According to Queeney reaches into the dustier realms of history, bringing vividly to life a group of remarkable personalities with all their frailties, absurdities and cruel sensitivities."
