Reviews

  • Sharp, funny and satirical… This is one to relish

    Guardian
  • Neatly written, full of calamitous moments in which the comedy is suddenly elbowed aside by genuine emotion

    D J Taylor, Spectator
  • Hovering adroitly between tragedy and farce...a good novel to savour by the pool in Tuscany this summer

    Angus Clarke, The Times
  • Duckworth is a worthy heir to a tradition of seductive, cultured literary monsters that includes Humbert Humbert, Hannibal Lecter and John Lanchester's Tarquin Winot

    John Dugdale, Sunday Times
  • mordant thriller

    three stars, Telegraph
