Read full description of the books:
"Me aguarde lo que me aguarde, ya sea mucho o poco, eso queda por ver, pero he conocido de lo que hablan los poetas y esa es la razón de que me sienta agradecido".
Es curioso la manera en que un libro o un escritor entra en nuestras vidas. En este caso, y prefiero pensar que el azar en sí no existe sino como fuerza que te impulsa ha mirar hacia un lado en concreto, me llegó a modo de un simple mensaje de propaganda. Pues bien, abrí el mensaje y descubrí a este autor y su nueva obra Belgravia. Y, aunque quizá suene extraño, me bastó leer un capítulo de su nueva novela para querer comprarme cualquier otro libro que hubiera publicado.
Empecé a leer este libro sin muchas expectativas, sólo por el placer de la lectura, y es lo que he obtenido. Me encanta el toque de fina ironía que emplea el autor para retratarse y retratar un pasado imperfecto (Y digo 'retratarse' porque en toda la novela he tenido la sensación de que el personaje masculino era él; alguien de carne y huesos, tangible)

Read information about the authorJulian Alexander Kitchener-Fellowes (Baron Fellowes of West Stafford), DL. English actor, novelist, screenwriter, and director.
Fellowes is the youngest son of Peregrine Fellowes (a diplomat and Arabist who campaigned to have Haile Selassie restored to his throne during World War II). Julian inherited the title of Lord of the Manor of Tattershall from his father, making him the fourth Fellowes to hold it. He was educated at Ampleforth College, Magdalene College, Cambridge, and at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art.
He played the part of Lord Kilwillie in the television series 'Monarch of the Glen.' Other notable acting roles included the part of Claud Seabrook in the acclaimed 1996 BBC drama serial 'Our Friends in the North.' He has twice notably portrayed George IV as the Prince Regent in the 1982 television version of 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' and the 1996 adaptation of Bernard Cornwell's novel 'Sharpe's Regiment.'
He wrote the screenplay for 'Gosford Park,' directed by Robert Altman, for which he won an Oscar for Best Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen in 2002.
His novel 'Snobs' was published in 2004. It focused on the social nuances of the upper class. Fellowes has described himself as coming from the "rock bottom end of the top", and drew on his knowledge of Society to paint a detailed portrait of the behaviour and snobbery of the upper class. 'Snobs' was a Sunday Times Best Seller and has now been published in many countries.
In the 1970s he also wrote romantic novels, using the names Rebecca Greville and Alexander Morant.
He launched a new series on BBC One in 2004, 'Julian Fellowes Investigates: A Most Mysterious Murder,' which he wrote and also introduced on screen.
He also penned the script to the current West End musical 'Mary Poppins,' produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Disney, which opened on Broadway in December 2006.
In late 2005 Fellowes made his directorial debut with the film 'Separate Lies.'
He is the presenter of 'Never Mind the Full Stops,' a panel-based gameshow transmitted on BBC Four from mid-2006.
On 28 April 1990, he married Emma Joy Kitchener (a Lady-in-Waiting to Princess Michael of Kent, and great-great-niece of the 1st Earl Kitchener) and assumed the name Kitchener-Fellowes by deed enrolled with the College of Arms in 1998.
