“This is surely the best historical novel in many years,” wrote Peter S. Prescott in Newsweek about Death of the Fox , George Garrett’s unparalleled reentry, into the heart of the English Renaissance. His new novel, The Succession, is surely the finest since: a triumph of intellect and imagination that once more brilliantly re-creates Elizabethan England.
After decades of rule, Elizabeth I lies dying. She has overcomes the Spanish, the Pope, power-hungry noblemen, even her beloved Essex. England is prospering under her; she is, they say, married to it. Who will succeed her? Who can ? To read The Succession is to be plunged into the last days of this great age, to experience its humanity, color, pageantry, and drama; its grandeur, squalor, splendor, and folly. And to better imagine the procession that came before us (in any land) and the succession to follow.
