• Wesley Stace is a brilliant and intensely original writer and this is his most unusual book yet

    Audrey Niffenegger
  • We might have predicted that Wesley Stace - a fine novelist and a fine musician - would one day write a novel about music, but could we have predicted that it would be so brilliant? The dialogue sparkles, the prose glimmers, and for once you leave a novel not just haunted by the characters and the story, but humming the tunes. A delightful Opus 3

    Jonathan Coe
  • A tremendously imaginative novel... beneath its sparkling surface there are some very murky depths. A wonderfully disquieting read

    Sarah Waters
  • Nothing in recent fiction prepared me for the power and the polish of this subtle tale of English music in the making, a chiller wrapped in an enigma

    New Stateman
  • His handling of dry comic dialogue and cynical affectation is reminiscent of P. G. Wodehouse... an intelligent, fun and thoughful piece of fiction
