• "Just thinking of this novel, I smile... so gratifyingly readable. When it comes to deciphering our new world and its emotional intricacies, Fonseca is spot-on"

    Fay Weldon
  • "A searing tale of middle-aged anxiety, so accomplished and pertinent, witty and wise"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "Fonseca possesses a wonderful eye and vocabulary for the observable world, a natural gift for portraiture and a nasty wit about characters we're not supposed to like... All is perfectly suited to her complex subject, one worth taking seriously: the difficulty of loving someone you already love, and its corollary, the stony impenetrability of others"

    Richard Ford
  • "An impressive is insistent, weighty, carefully and densely composed....this is an adult book in all respects, reflecting, with an inquiring intelligence and emotional honesty"

    Time Out
  • "She has an expressive turn of phrase and a gift for evoking a sense of place"

    Sunday Times
