Robert Gittings, a veteran biographer who has written extensively on Keats, knows how to gather facts and is scrupulous in distinguishing them from fancies; he writes with a strong feel for the passage and texture of common life.

Hardy's first recollection was of being given a small accordion by his father on his 4th birthday.
