A finely wrought and meticulously detailed biography of Mallory ... It is at once compelling and evocative (Joe Simpson, author of TOUCHING THE VOID)'The Gillmans have produced a respectful and thoroughly researched account of Mallory's life.' ObserverA rich portrait of a man who defies facile categorisation ... The new biography is spot-on [about the climbing] (Stephen Venables, Daily Telegraph)'Strikingly well balanced' Jan Morris, The SpectatorThe Gillmans have produced a respectful and thoroughly researched account of Mallory's life (Observer)Biographies don't get any better than this. Supremely well researched and documented, erudite, and masterfully written, this book isn't so much about what happened to Mallory in 1924 when he and his climbing partner Irvine disappeared in the mists of Mt. Everest, but rather it seeks the answer to another, almost more fascinating question: who was this man Mallory? This is the book to read to find the answerThis exemplary biography of Mallory, which draws upon much new material, puts the man in all his many perspectives... Strikingly well balanced (Jan Morris, Spectator)It is a masterful achievement - impeccably researched, beautifully written and a delight to read. Without question the Gillmans have written a definitive biography of an utterly fascinating man (Jon Krakauer)A poignant story, handsomely told (Yorkshire Post)The most compelling read over 12 months ... Go out and buy it (Ian Wooldridge, Daily Mail)Mountaineering biography at its best ... A fascinating life, an interior journey coupled with exterior adventure, and well told, too (Chris Smith, Mail on Sunday)` A superb biography' (Daily Telegraph)
