The Lord of Cat Bow

  • Stuart Weeks

    "The Lord of Cat Bow is a remarkable piece of intimate biographical writing. It touches on many different sides of America, particularly the WASP world of New England, and looks at the events of the past century through the prism of this grandson-grandfather relationship. Its strength is the heartfelt quality that runs throughout. The reader is allowed to look in on a traditional family at work and play and to compare it with other and very different facets of the American experience. There is an especially striking passage on the era of the Sixties—as seen through the eyes of representatives of two generations, holding very different views of what the Sixties meant to the nation—which makes the reader think rather than just appreciate." —Dr. Morris Martin, Professor Emeritus of Classics, Oxford and Princeton Universities
