• It’s beautifully written

    Victoria Hislop, Good Housekeeping
  • A very smart, soulful, compelling, elegantly written domestic novel

    Nick Hornby, Observer
  • Francesca Segal is incisive on modern lives, penetrating and thoughtful - and yet always joyfully entertaining and stylishly readable.

    Naomi Alderman
  • Segal’s wit and intelligence are entirely her own and the moral dilemmas of her characters could not be more modern… Segal has a superb eye for the lies that the middle-aged lovers tell themselves, and they are jolted back to reality when it all goes spectacularly wrong. It is nearly a tragedy, but not quite; she’s just too funny

    Kate Saunders, The Times
  • Elegant… an entertaining look at the messy business of trying to be in a family in emotionally trying circumstances… Irresistible

    Eithne Farry, Mail on Sunday
