Reviews

  • This novel is one of the finest attempts in English to convey something of two very strange places which no longer appear on the map of Europe... Shakespeare has told a very skilful story

    Evening Standard
  • Offers more than high romance: it is a portrait, and a good one, of the East Germany of the Stasi, with its bleakly beautiful landscapes, its casual betrayals, and its subtle capacity to dehumanise

    Daily Telegraph
  • His finest book yet. Beautifully written, rich in character, it displays all the courage for which its hero so desperately wants to be recognised

    Economist
  • A heart-warming tale of rich, enabling coincidence and conquering love; love without frontiers

    Guardian
  • Elegant metaphors, striking insights, eidetic settings and sensitive renditions of character - Shakespeare's writing is of a high order. Impressive

    Time Out
