Reviews

  • "Bowen is a tough old bird. And once you're on her side, it's going to be a loyal alliance. Because it's nice to have a writer who will never lie to you. Not even to make you feel a little better"

    Kirkus
  • "Bowen wrote numerous great novels, including <i>Friends and Relations</i>...about how telephones have infiltrated our thinking and desires: waiting for a call, being interrupted by a call, not knowing what might be announced"

    Guardian
  • "There is much to savour, enjoy, intrigue and shock in this wonderful novel. Bowen is sublime"
