  • Linn Ullmann has written something of beauty and solace and truth. I don't know how she managed to sail across such dangerous waters

    Rachel Cusk
  • This magnificent, elegant work is pure tour de force... one of the best things I've read in a long, long time

    Ali Smith
  • [An] exquisite and warm novel ... Among Norway's contemporary writers, Ullmann might be the finest sentence by sentence

    John Freeman
  • Unquiet is a wonderfully absorbing and moving family story told with a directness, naturalness, and grace that can only result from Linn Ullmann's close attention to the eloquent details of day-to-day life, her honest embrace of herself and the people close to her, and a keen sensitivity to language and the high demands of good writing

    Lydia Davis
  • I've long admired Linn Ullmann's fiction, and Unquiet is her masterpiece. Based on her upbringing as the child of two great artists, it is the portrait of complex loves; of a youth divided and inspired by diametrically opposed creative influences; and of the ravages of age. Calm yet fierce, exquisitely rendered, this novel imprints itself indelibly?as if you, too, had been there

    Claire Messud
  • Ullmann navigates the dangerous and fissile territory... with great power. I am in awe

    Edmund de Waal
  • Effortlessly lucid, full of grace and restraint

    Sunday Times
  • A powerful and unsettling hybrid of memoir, fiction and meditation ... The work of a lifetime
