“Bernard Lewis, a prominent and sometimes controversial historian, provides an engaging account of his very long life.  Ralph Lister’s performance is absolutely perfect.  The account begins with a narrative of Lewis’s early years in England during WWII and the years after.  After his migration to the U.S., the narrative turns into a series of fragments and scenes that are interesting but not always clearly delineated with respect to time.  Lewis enjoys humor, particularly one-liners—some are quite good.  Lister’s reading is always well paced, and his British accent works wonderfully.  He captures the perceptive and occasionally irascible scholar and his changing views over a lifetime.”
