Derby Day: A Novel

'“Derby Day is a triumphant success. In this unputdownable Victorian romp Taylor proves himself to be one of the finest of our 21st-century novelists.” —Financial Times “Derby Day will be hard to put down. As ever with Taylor, literary complexities lurk under the smooth surface of a stylish page-turner.” —Condé Nast Traveler “Taylor has written an exceptionally clever 19th-century novel with a richness of character that almost matches his models of Dickens and Thackeray.” —The Sunday Times“All of these characters move about in a world that is Victorian England to the core, with its monied elegance banging up against wretched poverty, its complicated systems of credit, its filthy streets and fetid air. Taylor scarcely leaves the reader wanting to inhabit this world, but at the same time he leaves one delighted to have visited it and to have shared in its dissolute yet inviting pleasures. Derby Day is on every count a winner.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post'
