Reviews

  • "Sophisticated comedy-what gives it its distinction is the quality of observation and the unusual marriage of high spirits with melancholy awareness of the passing of time"

    Scotsman
  • "Irresistible"

    Literary Review
  • "An acute observer of manners and styles"

    Independent
  • "Here is an imagination that effortlessly brings character after character to valiant, preposterous, malevolent or desperate life. Here is a writer who deserves to be far more widely read"

    Spectator
  • "It has a lightness, a breadth... an impressive energy and a humane comedy... Entertaining and affecting"
