Adam Nicolson

Earls of Paradise

Hay Festival 2008 , 
In his arcadian exploration, the historian takes a single great family, the Earls of Pembroke - their wives, children, estates, tenants and allies - and follows their high and glamorous trajectory across three generations of change, nostalgia, ambition, resistance and war from the 1520s to the 1640s.
