Reviews

  • "A beautifully observed novel...refreshing...captivating."

    Tatler
  • "A miracle of poetic compression...it unfolds the history of a consuming, unconsummated love. Not a false note in it. A remarkable achievement."

    George Melly, Books of the Year, Sunday Telegraph
  • "Snatches of beautifully written description are one of this book's pleasures...Wholly captivating. It approaches love without a hint of cynicism. It is modest, passionate and touching."

    Spectator
