Reviews

  • An utterly beguiling fever dream of a novel... Its sheer technical bravura places it head and shoulder above pretty much everything else on the [Booker] longlist

    Daily Telegraph
  • Writing so beautiful it stops the reader on the page

    Independent
  • A time-bending, location-hopping tale of love, truth and the power of seeing... Increasingly surreal and thoroughly gripping

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Exquisite... A brilliant Booker nominee

    Guardian
  • One of the big stories in English fiction this decade has been the return and triumph of Deborah Levy... You would call her example inspiring if it weren't clearly impossible to emulate

    New Statesman
  • An ice-cold skewering of patriarchy, humanity and the darkness of the 20th century Europe

    The Times
  • Charged with themes spanning memory and mortality, beauty and time, it's as electrifying as it is mysterious

    Mail on Sunday
  • Intelligent and supple...a dizzying tale of life across time and borders

    Financial Times
  • It's clever, raw and doesn't play by any rules

    Evening Standard
  • Superbly crafted, enigmatic, tantalizing... Levy defies gravity in a daring, time-bending new novel... Head-spinning and playful, her writing offers sophistication and delightful artistry

    Kirkus (Starred review)
