  • Olivia Manning has a wonderful and unfailing flair for describing both the atmosphere and the furniture of the world in which her people move

  • Manning writes always with a poet's care for words and it is her usual distinction of style and construction that lifts the novel- far, far above the average run

  • The most considerable of our women novelists

    Anthony Burgess
