John Sutherland

John Sutherland is Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus at UCL – a retired academic and a retired drinker. In his sobriety he has written many books, including recently, Jumbo (Aurum Press, 2014), the biography of an elephant who also had a giant-sized drink problem.

“John Sutherland is among the handful of critics whose every book I must have. He's sharp-eyed and sharp-tongued, with a generous heart and a wise head. ”
Jay Parini, author of The Last Station
“John Sutherland is the sharpest and wittiest of literary commentators.”
Claire Tomalin
