Reviews

  • It's a fantasy, a vivid dream... inventive and brilliant

    Guardian
  • As moving and funny as it is skilful, and reflects the author's formidable appetite for life

    Sunday Times
  • A book of great imaginative audacity and assurance...brilliantly physical (and funny) detail

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Its concentrated, beautifully detailed prose recalls the diction of fairy tales; its plot incorporates their magic, their shrewd wit and brutality...a deeply imagined and beautiful book, often arrestingly so

    New York Times
  • Lyrical prose penetrates to the heart of things... She knows how to speak plain truth and at the same time satisfy our longing for the fabulous. She's telling you stories. Trust her
