    Daily Telegraph
  • "An elegant, moving and intelligent book"

    Irish Times
  • "Gripping and beautifully written"

  • "Grips the reader from the start... Lean, artful, assured"

  • "James Lasdun is a tremendous writer and Seven Lies is that rare thing, a novel that delivers on every level. It is so gripping that you want to gobble it down at a single sitting, and yet the prose is so exacting that you want to linger over every sentence"
