Reviews

  • "Tyler's twentieth novel finds fresh fictional riches in imaginative territory she has been exploring for half a century... Atmospherically rendered, the passage of time has both entertaining and heart-rending results. She has never written with more finesse, vitality and acuteness"

    Sunday Times, book of the year
  • "I love Tyler's writing... She writes so beautifully and with such insight. Read her books and she can actually change your view, change how you see the world"

    Judy Finnigan, Mail on Sunday
  • "Exquisite"

    The Times

    Hanya Yanigihara, Observer, Books That Made Our Year 2015
  • "The extraordinary thing about her writing is the extent to which she makes one believe every word, deed and breath"
