Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Snobs is everything you would hope for from the writer of 'Gosford Park.' A delicious thoroughbred delight, a guilty treat that is awake to every maddening and appallingly attractive nuance of English social life. The novel somehow contrives to be moral without being preachy or losing for a minute its gracefully shameless delight in the well bred and their satellites. A kind of Louis Auchincloss for our times, Julian Fellowes has written a book that is destined to grace all the bedside tables of all the better houses in the land. Stephen Fry, author of Revenge and The Liar
