Reviews

  • Perhaps the first great novel of the 20th century

    New York Times
  • A simple but magnificent proof of genius. A first novel by a 25-year-old with absolute command of his craft, uncanny knowledge of his world, its past and present, and a daring originality which makes its last pages among the most startlingly moving I know

    Alan Hollinghurst, New York Times
  • One of the best novels of the 20th century

    Guardian
  • That definitive epic of German family life

    Irish Times
  • His masterpiece

    Los Angeles Times
