‘A quick-thinking book by an author who has something to say’ Guardian
‘Patrick Gale writes with the understated fluency that is the hallmark of contemporary British fiction, and with the irony that usually accompanies it. Like William Boyd and Martin Amis, he skilfully blends the light and the dark, moving unobtrusively from comedy to drama without losing narrative momentum or integrity’ Book World
‘A sleek and silky novel’ Boston Sunday Globe
‘Ease is a second novel by a young Briton whose gifts and insights are notable’ International Herald Tribune
‘Captivating. A novel that pleads to be read at a single sitting’ Publishers Weekly
