• A camp clever tour de force… an alternative autobiography, a ghost story and a murder mystery all in one slim volume. Brilliant… the quintessence of Ackroyd

    Sunday Telegraph
  • A book full of rich and sudden moments of delight

    The Scotsman
  • Harking back to Dickens... London is a major character in the novel. In Ackroyd's accomplished hands the city becomes a mystical place, where visions abound. Highly recommended.

    Daily Mail
  • * Cultural pick of the week *

    Mail on Sunday
  • Ackroyd is that timeless figure, a man of letters, dipped in ink, apparently versatile in a breathtaking variety of genres
