    Literary Review
  • "DJ Taylor creates characters who have dynamic spirit and capture the imagination, while the story has the tension of a thriller, the sensitivity of a romance and the wit of an idiosyncratic adventure"

    Easy Living
  • "Ambitious and immensely accomplished ... above all a meditation on selfhood and memory"

  • "A highly accomplished novel. It is engrossingly plotted, and its depiction of the vibrant decade leading to the 1929 Crash offers an interesting parallel to our own times"
