Reviews

  • Not a word is wasted in the telling of this tale. Each sentence is fashioned, polished, and put into place with microscopic care

    Daily Telegraph
  • This shiny little novel is not just about pretty porcelain figurines but about dirty great issues of life and creativity

    The Times
  • With Chatwin, the real excitement derives from an intellectual drama, in dialogues about art as a surrogate creation, a robbery of divine power, and art collecting as idolatry...For Chatwin, ideas are the supreme fictions

    Observer
  • Bruce Chatwin at his most erudite and evocative

    New York Times
