Hermes in Paris by Peter Vansittart Hermes in Paris, Hardback (September 2000)

Hermes, the messenger of Zeus, likes to return to Earth now and again. He chooses to do so in Paris at the time of Napoleon III, a time of great frivolity and instability. Here he decides to play the most explosive practical joke in the world's history.

Wall by Peter Vansittart Wall, Hardback (June 1990)

The Wall concerns the fortunes of a Roman family in the third century. Rome is brilliantly revealed by Peter Vansittart as strange, yet familiar, with issues like unemployment, inflation, pollution, and political corruption occupying the lives of its characters.

UK Kirkus Review » Here's a little book of anecdotes which will delight any reader with the same interests as the author - namely boks, and their (often mildly eccentric) authors. There are good stories about (and many quotations from) Angus Wilson, Middleton Murray, Bernard Shaw, Doris Lessing, Somerset Maugham ... you name them, Vansittart has something to say about them. He also has a good line in self-denigration, and tells many good stories against himself - such as when, irritated that an elderly man seemed to be cornering the market in intelligent nubile young women, he asked whether he perhaps had an interest in the theatre. Sir John Gielgud have him 'a studied conspiratorial wink'. (Kirkus UK)
