• Visceral, passionate, sylvan...anti-hypocrisy, anti-repression..dealing with love, death, with young people with everything before them, dealt a cruelly stacked hand... Hardy reaches deeper, into our wildest recesses. In a safe world, he speaks to our animal side.

    Evening Standard
  • To no tragic novelist do we surrender more completely at the of the most compassionate of all feel a kind of agony of helpless tenderness in the writer for all troubled souls

    The Times
  • Hardy may have been born in 1840 shortly after Victoria came to the throne, but he speaks to the 20th century rather than the 19th.

  • A classic outsider novel. An anthem to misery.
