Дата рождения: 1948

Э́двард Ре́зерфорд — английский писатель, автор исторических романов.

Родился в городе Солсбери, учился в Кембриджском университете и Стэнфордской школе бизнеса . Работал в области политических исследований, в книжной торговле и издательском деле. После неоднократных попыток обратиться к писательству в 1983 году оставил работу в книжной торговле и вернулся в родительский дом для работы над первым историческим романом «Sarum», основанном на истории его родного города. Четыре года спустя эта книга была опубликована и стала международным бестселлером. Международный успех имели и пять последующих романов Резерфорда, в каждом из которых прослеживается многовековая судьба той или иной местности с использованием как исторических, так и вымышленных персонажей.

„Лондон поставляет нам законы, войны и проституток. Под «проститутками», однако, подразумевались королевские губернаторы.“

„«Нью-Йорк», 2009.“

„Я считаю себя популяризатором истории, коммерческим романистом. Мне кажется, в этом нет противоречия.“

„Я не стану переписывать историю.“

„You can do what you like, sir, but I'll tell you this. New York is the true capital of America. Every New Yorker knows it, and by God, we always shall.“ New York

„as I said, I believe in fate. Things happen as they are meant to be. We just have to recognize our destiny.“ Russka: the Novel of Russia

„So does nobody care about Ireland?"

The Rebels of Ireland

„All empires become arrogant. It is their nature.“ New York

„However much you may fall in love, do not waste that love on a woman who is not considerate in return.“ Paris

„True the greater part of the Irish people was close to starvation. The numbers of weakened people dying from disease were rising. So few potatoes had been planted that, even if they escaped bight, they would not be enough to feed the poor folk who relied upon them. More and more of those small tenants and cottagers, besides, were being forced off the land and into a condition of helpless destitution. Ireland, that is to say, was a country utterly prostrated.
Yet the Famine came to an end. And how was this wonderful thing accomplished? Why, in the simplest way imaginable. The famine was legislated out of existence. It had to be. The Whigs were facing a General Election.“
The Rebels of Ireland

„She was quiet for a moment or two. Then she said: 'Cruel words are a terrible thing, Quash. Sometimes you regret them. But what's been said cannot be unsaid.“ New York

„Don't you know that there's another bubble as well An expectations bubble. Bigger houses private planes yachts...... stupid salaries and bonuses. People come to desire these things and expect them. But the expectations bubble will burst as well as all bubbles do.
Come to my gallery and I will sell you beautiful things at a more reasonable price. But the point is that they will have value. Things of real beauty things of the spirit.“
New York

„Fate was cruel, but it was fate.“ New York

„For the increase in the number of my Brennan cousins," Conall remarked dryly, "we must thank the potato.“ The Rebels of Ireland

„Paris. City of love. City of dreams. City of splendour. City of saints and scholars. City of gaiety.
Sink of iniquity.
In two thousand years, Paris had seen it all.“
