Reviews

  • "Evocative, captivating and acutely observed"

    Patricia Nicol, Sunday Times
  • "Clever... entertaining... elegant"

    Rose Wild, The Times
  • "It’s surprising there haven’t been more novels drawing on London’s fascination with Russian oligarchs. But how to write about them without it all seeming a bit Jackie Collins? Vesna Goldsworthy has hit on the perfect solution with her witty novel Gorsky"

    Viv Groskop, Spectator
  • "This is the most enjoyable fiction I’ve come across this year. Gorsky is engaging and, best of all…manages to cast London in a new and softer light. I defy anyone who revelled in Fitzgerald’s original not to have fun with Goldsworthy’s attempt to transpose arguably the greatest American novel back to the old world"

    Peter Carty, Financial Times
  • "Written with such narrative elegance that you’re led irresistibly on, as with some exquisite dish, from one perfect melting mouthful to the next"

    Michael Frayn
