"Stevenson has written a wonderfully vivid and intelligent book and one long overdue, to boot...This is her first biography and it is a gentle triumph of research and wit...is there nothing Jane Stevenson cannot do?" (Observer)
"Superlative... impressively researched and unerringly well-informed... one can think of half a dozen other British artists whose milieux are in some sense approximate to Edward Burra's and who would benefit from her engrossed and intensely sympathetic treatment" (D.J. Taylor TLS)
"Stevenson's triumphant debut as a biographer. She brings a novelist's sensibility to bear on her subject.... Her treatment of this brave, funny and inspiring artist is touching, totally unsentimental and supremely intelligent" (Sunday Times)
"Jane Stevenson makes a strong case for Burra's originality and integrity as an artist; his relentless creativity, always moving on" (Scotsman)
