• Daniel written with an understanding of egoism that no one except Proust has ever matched, and a calm assurance of style that sends a shiver of terrified sympathy down my spine.

    Laurence Lerner, Independent
  • The foremost woman novelist of her day

    Evening Standard
  • From Adam Bede to Daniel Deronda, she questioned her times. She plumbed ideas, politics, religion, race, and above all the vagaries of the heart

  • 700 pages of intellectual thrills. Watch out for the amazing women: Lydia Glasher, the abandoned mistress baying for revenge, and Alcharisi, the singer who gives up her son to pursue her career

    Patricia Duncker, Daily Telegraph
  • There is not a page of Daniel Deronda that is not marked with intelligence, and a few are as queer and perceptive as any I've read
