“No-one has ever written more beautifully …”

Nice to see A Land by Jacquetta Hawkes chosen by writer Adam Nicolson as one of the five best books about England in this short piece from yesterday’s Daily Telegraph.  He suggests an interesting comparison with a book new to me, Taylor on English Building, which he says see buildings (and stone) as the “autobiography of the country”.  Interesting stuff.
