Philip Larkin: A Writer's Life by Sir Andrew Motion

Philip Larkin: A Writer's Life

By Sir Andrew Motion

'An exemplary biography of its kind - detailed, meticulous and sympathetic.' Peter Ackroyd, The Times'Larkin lived a quietly noble and exemplary version of the writer's life; Motion - affectionate but undeceived about the man's frailties, a diligent researcher and a deft reader of poetry - has written an equally exemplary 'Life' of him.' Peter Conrad, Observer'Honest but not prurient, critical but also compassionate, Motion's book could not be bettered.' Alan Bennett, London Review of Books'There will be other lives of Larkin, but Motion's, like Forster's of Dickens, will always have a special place.' John Carey, Sunday Times
