  • I was captivated from the first page. I cannot remember when I enjoyed a first novel more

    Nina Bawden, Daily Telegraph
  • If all works of fiction were as thoughtful, as subtle, as well constructed, and as funny as Metroland there would be no more talk of the death of the novel

    New Statesman
  • A rare and unusual first novel

    William Boyd, London Magazine
  • A very funny, touching first novel. It has a hard comic edge to it that is logical and at the same time extremely diverting

  • One would have to look very hard to find a wryer, more lovingly detailed account of intellectual and sexual innocence abroad

    Jay Parini, New York Times
