Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Thomas Hardy by Claire Tomalin, read by Jill Balcon and David Shaw-Parker.
Paradox ruled Thomas Hardy's life. His birth was almost his death; he became one of the great Victorian novelists and reinvented himself as one of the 20th-century's greatest poets; he was an unhappy husband and a desolate widower; and he wrote bitter attacks on the English class system yet prized the friendship of aristocrats.
In the hands of Whitbread Award-winning biographer Claire Tomalin, author of the best-selling books Charles Dickens: A Life and The Invisible Woman, Thomas Hardy the novelist, poet, neglectful husband and mourning lover all come vividly alive.
"An extraordinary story, beautifully told. Tomalin is the most empathetic of biographers." (Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday)
"Another triumph for a biographer who goes from strength to strength." (Melvyn Bragg, Guardian, Books of the Year)
"Tomalin provides an object lesson in how to write a life." (Economist)

Great Novelist But A Boring Life
I have to disagree with the majority of reviewers on this one. However prolific a biographer Tomalin is, Hardy lived a fairy average, dull, life, and this biography failed to satisfy my curiosity about Hardy's subjectivity and his philosophy of writing. I listened to and enjoyed her biographies of Dickens and Bronte, but Hardy and his satellites came across dry, middle-class, windbags. Having said this, its the only Hardy biography on audible, so half an eye is better than no eye.
