Reviews

  • Tessa Hadley is one of our finest writers. The sensitivity of her psychological insight and understanding is unmatched by anyone writing today... [in Late in the Day], Hadley comes into her own. It’s glorious stuff: moving, beautiful and so enjoyable. All hail Queen Tessa!

    The Times *Books of the Year*
  • Hadley’s wonderful tale [Late in the Day –] measured, ironic, disarmingly perceptivepicks up on all the contradictions of human existence. With Hadley, you know there’s an adult in the room.

    Observer
  • The quintessential domestic novel in the most elevated sense… excellently insightful on family dynamics and the intricacies of close friendship.

    The High Low podcast
  • With each new book by Tessa Hadley, I grow more convinced that she’s one of the greatest stylists alive… her quietly elegant style and muted wit are triumphs… the everyday tragedies and betrayals of domestic life [are] rendered by Hadley’s prose into something extraordinary… The tone of Late in the Day is perhaps Hadley’s most delicate accomplishment.

    Washington Post
  • You know you are in safe hands with Tessa Hadley who, on a sheer sentence-by-sentence level, delivers more enjoyment than almost any other living writer... you'll be hanging on to every word.
