Reviews

  • "Adam Thorpe is brilliant. Utterly brilliant. I use the word advisedly, OED advisedly, the best a man can get... the book moved me so much that the denouement made me cry... Thorpe, I believe, may be so ambitious, so brilliant, he's actually trying to rewrite Flaubert"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Magnificent... A deftly plotted love story, full of startling disclosures, the novel draws one in irresistibly... Adam Thorpe is a marvel among contemporary British novelists, and we are lucky to have him"

    Independent
  • "This is recognisably a poet's book, stuffed with small luminous details and off-kilter observations and permanently alert to the strange texture of things...a hugely enjoyable book by a writer at the top of his game who's demonstrably still having great fun doing what he does. Long may that continue"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "Brilliant... It is a rich book: sensuous, thoughtful and sad"

    Time Out
  • "Thorpe demonstrates the foresight and guile of the seasoned storyteller, coupled with a poet's ability to knock the language for six... Between Each Breath is funny, well-observed and thought-provoking"
