• Dazzling...the panache and subtlety of his prose perfectly match that gusto and creative finesse of the High Victorian world his novel wonderfully evokes

    Sunday Times
  • A novel I'd recommend to anyone: a rollicking and moving story... Delicious and clever late-Victorian gothic

    James Naughtie, Radio Times
  • An ingenious novel… O’Connor’s work is hugely impressive and utterly haunting

    Sunday Mirror
  • Joseph O’Connor is a very great artist and storyteller. The quotient of enjoyment in his extraordinary new novel is stupendous

    Sebastian Barry
  • A hugely entertaining book about the grand scope of friendship and love, it is also, movingly – at times, astonishingly – a story of transience, loss and true loyalty
