• A mighty novel.

  • Remarkable… May well come to be seen as the dystopian British novel of its times

  • Thrilling and enigmatic

    New York Times Book Review
  • Snarling, effervescent and ambitious… Jacobson’s triumph is to craft a novel that is poignant as well as troubling

  • Jacobson…goes from strength to strength.

    William Leith, Evening Standard
  • Very little about Jacobson’s circuitous romance-cum-murder mystery is straightforward – other than its originality and its devastating brilliance.

    Stephanie Cross, Daily Mail
  • A dystopia that invites comparison with George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World

    Sunday Times
  • Mystifying, serious and blackly funny.
