Reviews

  • They are absolute comfort books . . . All five titles are being rereleased just in time for summer

    The Lady
  • Pop is as sexy, genial, generous, and boozy as ever. Ma is a worthy match for him in all these qualities

    -, The Times
  • As funny as Evelyn Waugh and as enchanting as Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie. Don't miss it

    -, Herald
  • Pop Larkin, Ma and their progeny . . . are essentially English of the rich and ribald England of Chaucer and Shakespeare. A superb and timeless comedy

    -, Scotsman
  • A perfick piece of entertainment

    -, New York Times
  • A wistful daydream about innocence and happiness

    -, Spectator
  • A pulsing comedy of country manners. A five-alarm blaze of a book. Just about perfick

    -, Time
  • A gently, anarchic wish-fulfilling daydream

    -, The Times
  • The Larkins live - these novels please us by escaping definition

    -, Guardian
