  • I was deeply moved... De Waal has found a way to meditate on exile, migration and polarisation that feels painfully relevant

    Sunday Times
  • This is a marvellous book, elegant, tender, loving, appreciative, disturbing, a reminder of both the fragility and resilience of high culture, indeed civilisation

  • De Waal is a writer of grace and restlessly enquiring intelligence, and Letters to Camondo succeeds admirably... Edmund de Waal's beautiful book opens a window onto an entire lost world

    Evening Standard
  • De Waal's sentences like to take the historical weight of the objects he describes... An unforgettable book

  • It will make you think differently about trunks in the attic and it will make you read old letters with new eyes

    The Times
