Illtyd Harrington on A Classless Society

I've never met Illtyd Harrington, but I've been an admirer of his for years, both for his time in London politics and for his writing in my local newspaper, the Camden New Journal. And there he is this week, reviewing A Classless Society:

'I was captivated, almost smothered by the incessant flow of facts, opinion and conclusion. Turner, as he proved in the other two books, can sew events together seamlessly ... This is a wonderful panorama of the 1990s, as fluid as a mountain stream with encyclopaedic ripples, a strict adherence to the facts, and all 600 pages as readable as a letter from your mother.'

My many thanks to Mr Harrington for his generous words.
