  • "Deborah Moggach is a delight to read-her characters are wonderfully alive, and their stories grip us unequivocally... the novel is enjoyable from first to last"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "It is characterisation at which Moggach excels. Her gift is to perceive and describe our confusions about life... and to write with feeling about the continual quest for love and happiness that is part of the human condition"

    Sunday Times
  • "A neat plot... [with] dark flashes of hubris and nemesis"

    Guardian
  • "Moggach's subject is the rickety edifice we call the family, which she comes at armed with both a wrecking ball and an insatiable curiosity to note the particular way it collapses"

    Independent
  • "She is a terrific plotter"

    Guardian
