Reviews

  • Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable.

  • There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written

    Sunday Times
  • No one ever forgets this book

    Independent
