  • A richly atmospheric tale with a bleak glimpse of the empire

    Jeffrey Burke, Mail on Sunday
  • A View of the Empire at Sunset is a sympathetic and powerful portrait of an outcast…as well as a searing indictment of the empire

  • [Phillips is] a lyrical, transporting stylist and his focus on Gwen’s displacement has profound thematic resonance

    Lucy Atkins, Sunday Times
  • A View of the Empire at Sunset quietly but powerfully articulates the social and global forces that shaped such a woman
