• "She writes beautifully, as always, and the phrase-making is as good as the characterisation...brilliant"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "A delightful novel"

  • "These Foolish Things, a kind of less savage version of Kingsley Amis's unbearably funny novel Ending Up. Moggach's prose is markedly more graceful than Agatha Christie's, her moral world is not dissimilar"

    The Times
  • "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
  • "Moggach has served us a treat with this novel. Moving, sincere, funny, terrifying in places, it is a truthful view of old age and what it brings"
