  • "Flawed Angel is easy to read, but persists in the mind when it has been read, and asks to be thought about"

    A S Byatt, Guardian
  • "A clever pastiche of an Arabian fable in which the 18th-century ruler of a Middle Eastern land reluctantly faces up to the unsuitability of his son, a fat, dreamy boy, to act as his heir...Playful yet intelligent, it's an impressive exercise in literary impersonation"

    Financial Times
  • "The fabulous plot carries us along at a goodish speed and...[t]he manner of writing is sculpted, arch, luscious, mellifluous, anachronistic, and a touch wayward"

    Michael Glover, Independent
  • "A beautifully textured homily on the indomitable nature of truth. As such, Fuller finally hits that elusive mark: a novel as intellectually provocative as it is emotionally beguiling"

    Lucy Powell, Observer
  • "Thought-provoking, sumptuously written...a curiously beautiful and life-affirming story"

    Sunday Telegraph
