Reviews

  • "A subtle, brilliant and paradoxical novel. She writes beautifully about nature. No one has ever written better than she does here about the English upper-class cult of fox-hunting pre-1914... Hound Music is an enthralling and non-judgemental evocation of a vanished world"

    Spectator
  • "A beautiful, resonant book about a hidden world, part of which is gone forever... She is an extraordinary writer... The charm of this strange, haunting novel lies in her extraordinary ability not merely to describe, but to convey the very texture of whatever she is writing about"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "She has written some of the most memorable prose in contemporary fiction. Richly evocative of the countryside, plangent and mischevious, Hound Music is a story of fox-hunting as it was in the years 1900- 1902"
