Praise for Great Harry

"This historical biography reads like the liveliest fiction. Erickson's portraits of Henry VIII, Catherine of Aragon, Cardinal. Wolsey, Thomas Cromwell, and Anne Boleyn are carefully drawn-and utterly fascinating." --Chicago Tribune

"An admirable biography, graphic, judicious, carefully researched, skillfully constructed, and full of those telling details that are an essential ingredient of the narrator's art." --Christopher Hibbert, The New York Times Book Review

"A book of considerable literary distinction. Erickson's training as a professional historian keeps the main structure of the story firmly tied to the evidence. The result commands belief as well as respect." --John Kenyon, Washington Post Book World
