Reviews

  • Bernardine Evaristo can take any story from any time and turn it into something vibrating with life

    Ali Smith
  • This riproaring, full-bodied riff on sex, secrecy and family is Bernardine Evaristo's seventh book. If you don't yet know her work, you should - she says things about modern Britain that no one else does

    Guardian
  • Transforms our often narrow perceptions of gay men in England . . . Comical, agonising and, ultimately, moving

    Independent
  • Evaristo has a lot going on in this unusual urban romance, but beneath her careful study of race and sexuality is a beautiful love story. Not many writers could have two old men having sexual intercourse in a bedsit to a soundtrack of Shabba Ranks's Mr Loverman and save it from bad taste, much less make it sublime. But the hero of this book, and his canny creator, make everything taste just fine

    Daily Telegraph
  • An undeniably bold and energetic writer, whose world view is anything but one-dimensional

    Sunday Times
  • Audacious genre-bending, in-yer-face wit and masterly retellings of underwritten corners of history are the hallmarks of Evaristo's wit

    New Statesman
  • Heartbreaking yet witty, this is a story that needed to be told

    Observer
  • A brilliant study of great characters in modern London

    Independent
  • Funny, brave . . . I loved Mr Loverman

    Ian Thomson, Spectator
  • Transforms our often narrow perceptions of gay men in England . . . Comical, agonising and, ultimately, moving

    Independent
